Anneke Nunn
Dutch orthography
A systematic investigation of the spelling of Dutch words

This study offers a detailed and systematic account of Dutch
orthography and its relation to the linguistic system. It reveals
aspects of the spelling system that were ignored or left implicit
until now, and integrates them with what was already known from
prescriptive and descriptive accounts. The most important insight
this study yields is that the Dutch spelling system consists of two
distinct components: phoneme-to-grapheme conversion rules and
autonomous spelling rules. Thus, the computation of spelling from
sound representations is a two-step process. The investigation also
shows that the phoneme-to-grapheme conversion rules for
non-native words should be distinguished from the rules for native
words. The autonomous spelling rules apply to both sets of lexical
items alike, however. Dutch spelling rules were modelled by means
of a computer programme and applied to the sound representations
of Dutch words.
