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 boekwinkeltjes.nl and I found one book of hers on waddenkiosk.nl.
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
