Sorry, no etymologies found.
In Europe, I'm hearing talk of Dutchized versions of Limburgish, mixed Platt-German hybrids and resurgence of Occitan, Wallon and even Provençal from people who speak it as if it was French.
These are primarily Dutch, Zeelandic (Zeeuws, West Flemish), Frisian, Limburgish and Low Saxon (Low German).
For instance the Netherlands has to protect West Frisian, Limburgish, Low Saxon, Romani and Yiddish.
