    I am English, by the way, and have been learning Dutch for about 7 months now with good progress. What a great language it is!

    10:10 "ming dir doch vanderhaart" sounds more like "mijn dier dacht van der hart", which is like: "my animal thought from the heart" - which may mean something like "my pet is lovely"?

    Dutch for "tombola" is "tombola", the only differnce between the two being we, the dutch, emphasize the first syllable.

    She behaves very American and talks in a very American way for a Dutch Person. At school we are taught Oxford English. Some Dutch people seem to have a sort of inferiority complex and want to be American like, at least that is how it comes across to me. I don't know her personally though...

    Sanne sounds rather Mid-Western American. And she pronounces the 'butter' in peanut butter like we do - with the hard d and r sounds. Cool, bro. Ha.

    The left guy suspect that we don't have bad words? He really got to know our bad ones. It's quite poetic. And then we also have dialect ... that's really bad, certainly in Rotterdams.

    Tombola is actually quite similar in Dutch, only with the emphasis on "tom".

    Them Englishmen don't realize that "hand shoe" (handschoen) is the literal translation of "glove" in other lingos than Dutch. Take German for instance, you got your "Handschuh".

    Het woord Tombola staat ook in het Nederlands woordenboek. Op de kermis werd het gespeeld mensen kochten een bonnetje met een nummer en een zelfde bonnetje ging in een ronddraaiend kistje of tonnetje. Het nummer dat daarna werd getrokken won de prijs.

    On tombola : I live in the dutch speaking part of Belgium, and tombola is the standard word we use for a raffle/lottery. We put the accent on the first syllable "tom" though. There's quite a few words and expressions that we use and the Dutch don't. And vice versa.
    Strange thing : we understand all of theirs, but they tend not to understand all of ours ...

  • Els Borra
    Els Borra Year ago

    To translate "Bleekscheet" to ""Pale Fart" is prove of ignorance of the (Dutch?) woman - it means "Pale Face"....

    • Els Borra

  • John Hooyer

    "Ming dir docht vanderhaart," is fake. Okay, I'm surprised that I got to the end without getting a single one wrong. Of course, I don't know these guys and thought that they spoke conversational Dutch like me, and that she was going to make it trickier for them.

  • John Hooyer
    John Hooyer Year ago

    "Wat je zegt ben je zelf met je kont door de helft" means what she's translated it as, that much I can say, but I actually have never heard anyone say that. Of course, I'm Dutch-American, several generations in, and the idioms used over a hundred years ago probably aren't the same as those used today.

  • John Hooyer

    "Boeterkreuk Kannanmart" is fake. . .

  • John Hooyer
    John Hooyer Year ago +1

    "Nijlpaard" is a real world. Judging by "eggant lunduhn," I'm guessing it's fake because of the spelling.

  • John Hooyer
    John Hooyer Year ago

    "Romanktapen" isn't a Dutch word. I could tell because, as she said, it was just "random sounds."

    you know the Nijlpaard you could guess because it's actually a hippopotamus wich is Greek for river horse...

  • gnilttbs
    gnilttbs Year ago

    It makes sense that 'hippopotamus' should be 'nijlpaard', seeing as 'hippopotamus' itself comes from the Greek, meaning 'river horse'. In Swedish, the word for hippo is 'flodhäst'; in Welsh, it is 'afonfarch': and just like Greek and Dutch, these words also mean 'sea horse'.
