Sallaans (Dutch: Sallands) is a collective term for the Dutch Low Saxondialects of the region Salland, in the eastern Netherlands. A common term used by native speakers for their dialect, which is also used by Low Saxon speakers from other regions for their respective dialects, is plat or simply dialect. Yet another common usage is to refer to the language by the name of the local variety, where for instance Dal(f)sens would be the name for the Sallaans variety spoken in the village of Dalfsen. Sallands is more influenced by the Hollandse dialects than Twents or Achterhoeks. This influence is called the Hollandse expansie. For example, house is in Twente hoes but in Salland it is huus. The Hollandse dialects of the 17th century still had uu sounds in their vocabulary, and this uu sounds came in Sallands.
