The term Flemish, besides an adjective referring to an attribute of any circumscription of an area named Flanders or its people and culture, can be a linguistic one, referring to the speech of the Flemings, inhabitants of Flanders, though Algemeen Nederlands (Common Dutch) is the name of their official standard language. 'Flemish' is used to describe certain non-standardized dialects spoken in Flanders, and sometimes to Dutch as spoken in Belgium. The latter usage, though widespread, is not considered correct by linguists: boundaries between areas of distinct groups of historical Dutch dialects do not coincide with the national borders, which only sprang up in the 19th century. – A comparison between the Netherlands and Flanders, of the Dutch language as heard on TV.
