(PDF 160.2 kb)
The topic of this article is sibilant palatalisation in the speech of Moroccan-Dutch youth from Gouda, a small city in the Netherlands. In the first part of the article, sibilant palatalisation is described as a variable feature of Moroccan-Dutch speech, which mainly occurs in restricted phonetic and lexical contexts. In the second part some of the data will be explored more closely through the lens of stance-taking. By adopting this particular approach a different light is thrown on the concept of the Moroccan Dutch ethnolect. Sibilant palatalisation, which can function as a stance marker, should not be solely viewed as a linguistic marker of ethnic identity.
