    what is this accent? in my view it sounds completely different to the above video


    There is a small brunet minority that is anthropologically Nordid, but aberrant pigmentation does not necessarily indicate non-Nordid admixture.

    The Nordid eye is typically light-mixed blue, with a large pure light-eyed minority. Here also there is a small dark-pigmented minority.

    What English call West Frisian - we just call Frisian. West Frisia is a region of North Holland (that once pretty much extended to just above Amsterdam and as far North as Texel) and was, traditionally, part of Frisia until the Zuiderzee came into being and the area was conquered by the Hollanders.

    The Marsdiep was once a river (fluvium Maresdeop) which may have been a distributary of the Vlie. During the early Middle Ages this began to change as rising sea levels and storms started to eat away at the coastal areas which consisted mainly of peatlands. In this period the inlet was referred to as the Almere, indicating it was still more of a lake, but the mouth and size of the inlet were much widened in the 12th century and especially after a disastrous flood in 1282 [5] broke through the barrier dunes near Texel. The disaster marked the rise of Amsterdam on the southwestern end of the bay, since seagoing traffic of the Baltic trade could now visit.

    He speaks a bit weird but she speaks a typically Milllenial version of standard Dutch (which is based on the Holland dialect). I hear some influences of Poldernederlands which is one those new ongoing developments. Judging from their speech and mannerisms: they must be from the West - maybe Utrecht but I don't hear any influences there either but people have long since moved all across the country.

    Here's North Frisian, it's the one that would've been spoken in Slesvig between the Low Saxon and Danish border. Ironically, an Afrikaaner friend of mine understood this dialect better than West Frisian. I've even had folks liken it to Scots. What do you reckon to it?
