Genootschap Onze Taal

Genootschap Onze Taal ('Society Our Language') is a Dutch society dedicated to the Dutch language. It was founded in 1931, initially to guard the language against what was seen as an invasion of Germanisms.[1]

Onze Taal offices

The society publishes a journal, Onze Taal, and a number of regularly appearing booklets on spelling, the most notable of which is the White Booklet. It also has an advisory service, the Taaladviesdienst.[2]
