4th WFW : Word Collecting at the Steenmeulen in Terdeghem

On Friday afternoon the Institut de la Langue Régionale Flamande ILRF-ANVT organised a word collecting session in the windmill of Terdeghem called « Steenmeulen » to collect West Flemish words related to windmills and milling tools.

Joseph Markey, the owner of the windmill and a great enthusiast of Flemish windmills, toured the session participants in West Flemish, using the technical words for every single piece of the windmill and the miller’s tools. The words that were collected will be added to the West Flemish Dictionary. The occasional visitors came from both sides of the border and were glad to be toured in the one and same language.
