The 12 materials for Eilauners

Written by Dyami Millarson

Whilst still purposefully immersed in the Aasters language challenge, I had already been making serious plans and preparations for starting the next language challenge. I realised that the best thing I could do was to start collecting Eilauners/Schiermonnikoogs books so I would have enough matetials for my next language challenge.

I had initially made an effort to find out the names of authors of books in Eilauners. I found that the works of the deceased Eilauners author Pita Grilk would be particularly interesting for my next language challenge. For this reason, I decided to collect all the books of Pita Grilk using and I found one book of hers on

I found several materials by other authors apart from Pita Grilk as well, such as Wiersma and Fokkema. When I was looking for Eilauners/Schiermonnikoogs reading material, it was serendipity that I found coursebooks about Eilauners that I could order directly from Eric Augusteijn of the cultural-historical organisation ‘t Heer en Feer. He offered to sell me the complete 3-part series of coursebooks along with some other materials.

I have the following materials for my current language challenge:

(1) Op ‘e bjokkens fan de tiid

(2) Schiermontseiger lôzbúek

(3) Kursus Eilanders, Deel: 1

(4) Kursusboek eilander taal, Deel: 2

(5) Kursusbúek 3: Wierhôlingen en Ferjeppingen

(6) It efangeelje fan Mattheüs

(7) Beknopte spraakkunst Schiermonnikoogs.

(8) It swiere akkeurd

(9) Swyljen – It jonge hets – Eeunderwoois

(10) Krimpe – In minsk allene – Aud welkomtús

(11) De Pole en minsken

(12) De lytje Pole
