The word 'dutch' has taken on quite a few new meaning
s in the English language
- meanings that have very little to do with the language spoken by the Dutch people, and that are usually derogative
, interestingly enough.
To my knowledge, this should be a fairly complete list. If you can think of any others, let me know:
must have been mighty loving about us Dutchmen, ey? Well, if nothing else, at least we are known for being tolerant, and are more likely to shrug, have another Grolsch
and shrug it all off.
