The Meertens Institute is an institute of the Royal Netherlands' Academy of Arts and Sciences. It was founded in 1932 as a bureau for the documentation of Dutch dialects. In later years, Dutch ethnology and onomastics have been included in the documentative tasks of the institute. At this moment, the Meertens Institute is primarily a research institute with substantial collections in the fields of language variation, European ethnology and onomastics.
