Frequently Asked Questions
Maasgeluide is a research project started to foster the dialects in the Limburg region, more specifically - Maastricht and Eijsden dialects. Our goal is for more people to hear and understand what the dialects sound like and for locals or visiting tourists to be able to practice speaking in these dialects. Also, being a research project, most of the data collected from the project goes into research work.
