Sammanfattning (abstract):
In the 17th century Sweden had very lively business relations with Holland, and the Dutch language was frequently used in Sweden, even at the Royal Court, but still it took 200 years until Dutch became a field of study at the universities. At the end of the 19th century, the Germanists at the universities of Uppsala and Lund focused on the development of the Germanic languages, studying old Frisian and Dutch texts and compared them with German and Scandinavian ones. For this reason, courses in Dutch soon became a compulsory part of the academic study of German in Lund and Uppsala. The first dictionary was published in 1907 and the first Dutch course book appeared in 1910. In the mid-20th century, however, the study of historic Dutch gradually lost its importance and the pragmatic need to learn modern Dutch increased. In the sixties, Dutch became an independent study subject at the universities of Stockholm and Göteborg. Today students can choose Dutch as their mayor subject in bachelor examinations, and the lecturers not only teach but also conduct research into the Dutch language.
