SUMMARYAlthough political, social and cultural relationships between 17th-century England and the Netherlands have inspired several books and articles, no general account has yet been produced of the linguistic achievements, academic and applied, which resulted to a large extent from the common personal interests of English and Dutch scholars of the period. This brief survey attempts to present such an account, beginning with the linguistic problems which beset religious refugees in both countries, and their attempted solutions — more especially for the Dutch in England. This and other topics referred to here have already been discussed elsewhere on an individual basis; by considering them together in a single paper, it is hoped to demonstrate that the results of Anglo-Dutch linguistic collaboration were worthy to be compared with achievements in other and better-known fields.RÉSUMÉBien que plusieurs monographies et articles aient ete consacres aux rapports politiques, sociaux et culturels entre l'Angleterre et les Pays-Bas au dix-septieme siecle, il n'existe jusqu'ici aucune etude generate des ac-complissements academiques et pratiques sur le plan linguistique qui pro-viennent en grande partie des interets particuliers et mutuels des savants anglais et neerlandais de I'epoque. Dans ce resume on essaie de presenter un tel recit, qui pour commencer, traite les problemes linguistiques rencontres par les refugies de la religion dans les deux pays, et les solutions tenta-tives, plus particulierement de la part des Neerlandais en Angleterre. Ce theme et d'autres auxquels on s'adresse ici ont deja ete discutes ailleurs dans des articles specialises; en les considerant ensemble dans une etude plus elargie on espere demontrer que les resultats de la collaboration linguistique anglo-neerlandaise ont ete dignes d'etre compares avec les ac-complissements dans d'autres domaines mieux connus.
