West-Veluws is a Veluws dialect from the Dutch province of Gelderland. This dialect is spoken in different villages on the west side of the Veluwe and some villages on border of Gelderland and Utrecht (Bunschoten, Scherpenzeel et cetera). Sometimes even the dialect of Huizen in North Holland is seen as West-Veluws (but mostly as Hollandic).

There is a 'dictionary' (more like a theme book with the local Veluws translations of Dutch words).

  • Part one: Woordenboek van de Gelderse Dialecten, Veluwe - Het huis
  • Part two: Woordenboek van de Gelderse Dialecten, Veluwe - De mens
  • Part three: Woordenboek van de Gelderse Dialecten, Veluwe - De wereld

The whole project is expected to be put online by 2010.

West-Veluws is a variety which lies between Low Franconian and Low Saxon. West-Veluws does however belong to Low Saxon because of its grammar, typical Low Saxon vocabulary and history.
