liefde (=love)

With maybe the exception of the unasked there just isn't such thing available as a dumb question - Z4us

Taatje - vriend, makker in het oude dialect gesproken in Huizen. Nooit taat, alleen taatje
Gerole - geruild in het Hilversums dialect, mochten we op school niet zeggen
Roggel - het woord heeft de klank van het geluid dat je keel maakt net voor je hem uitspuugt

May your moments of need be met by moments of compassion

Mijn favoriet woord in het Nederlands is "gezellig". Vaak in het Engels ik wil gezellig gebruiken, want het is een beetje meer precies in bepaalde situaties als "cozy".

Ik vind 'gehaktbal' is een heel lekker woord.

I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger. (Anon)

Since John Fealey did a funny act about it, I started to appreciate the word "Zakje". Search for it on Youtube, or follow this link.

Although we actually say "tasje" more commonly ;').

I agree with Mezzopoet on the word "gezellig" too!

My Dutch has become a bit rusty but I like meisje and schatje.

I'm not a royalist, but I've always found it very appealing for a people to be able to call its head of state "Koniginetje".

Helaas, ik denk niet dat 'er een diminutief for "Koning" bestaat. Of wel?

"Koninginnetje" is how to spell it correctly.

Het verkleinwoord voor "koning" is "koninkje".

I don't really recall myself referring to them with these words, though ;). Maybe in some songs?

I'm quite fond of the word "foefelen", because it's delightfully multifunctional. It means to mess around with something while you're not really sure what you're doing, and it can have a neutral or a negative connotation, or even a sexual one.

Indeed, foefelen is a cute Netherlands word. Surprisingly, I have only heard it spoken in the Belgian ‘county’ Flanders. Never in The Netherlands.


Politicians in The Hague also have a favorite (AE) word.

Every time they open their mouths and say something stupid or make a blunder, they don’t [can’t] apologize. That's not done.

They just say that their word choice was ‘onhandig’. The equivalent to ‘unhandy’ in English.
