The Instituut voor de Nederlandse Taal (or Dutch Language Institute) is the place for anyone who wants to know anything about the Dutch language through the centuries. It is a scholarly but at the same time easily accessible institute that studies all aspects of the Dutch language, including its vocabulary, grammar and linguistic variations. The institute collects new Dutch words, updates important reference works such as the Algemene Nederlandse Spraakkunst, the main standard work on Dutch grammar, and creates terminology lists to make professional jargons accessible.

The institute also takes a central position in the Dutch-speaking world (the Netherlands, Vlaanderen, Suriname and the Netherlands Antilles) as a developer, keeper and distributor of corpora, lexica, dictionaries and grammars. With these sustainable language resources, all results of  scholarly methods, the Dutch Language Institute provides the necessary building blocks of the study of Dutch.
