Abstract: Let $ X$ be a spherical variety for a connected reductive group $ G$. Work of Gaitsgory and Nadler strongly suggests that the Langlands dual group $ G^\vee $ of $ G$ has a subgroup whose Weyl group is the little Weyl group of $ X$. Sakellaridis and Venkatesh defined a refined dual group $ G^\vee _X$ and verified in many cases that there exists an isogeny $ \varphi $ from $ G^\vee _X$ to $ G^\vee $. In this paper, we establish the existence of $ \varphi $ in full generality. Our approach is purely combinatorial and works (despite the title) for arbitrary $ G$-varieties.
