This is not one of my Conlang even though it looks like it is

Hopefully dialects are allowed

Limburgs (ouch waal: Lèmburgs, Limburgsj of Limburgisj) is d'r populaere naam vör 'n verzameling dialekte die in de dialektologie 't Zuidoosnederfrankisch geneumd werre. Me is ooch d'r term 'Limburgs' gaoë gebruke umdat de mètste gebroekers van dis dialekte in èng van de beide Limburge wonne, mae 't haat och luuj in Wallonië en Duutsjland die dis taal noch kalle. 't Limburgs is dus e diasysteem. 't Limburgs is ing vaan de winnige toeëntale in Europa.

I think the generally accepted rule in this thread is that you only post a language if you've just correctly guessed one.

Is this the official orthography or did you replace <ə>'s with <e>'s for easier typing?

My source says that this is the official alphabet, insofar as there is one. The <e> is original. <ə> appears in the official orthography, just not in the selected portion of the sample text.
