This paper purports to give an overview of recent research concerning the diversification of Dutch due to external causes (‘recent’ covering more or less the last fifteen years). Special attention is paid to Jewish Dutch, Cape Dutch and Afrikaans, and Virgin Islands Dutch Creole (Negerhollands). These sections are preceded by a systematic overview of all sorts of non-native and/or non-metropolitan Dutch such as the US Dutch varieties, both older and emerging ethnolects of Dutch, mixed languages such as Pecok in colonial Indonesia, Dutch-based pidgins in South Africa and Dutch-based Creoles in the Caribbean.
