Welcome all Street Talk Savvy followers. Today we have the great news of the launch of Dutch Slang. After a bit of time we finally add the next language in our archives.
Dutch is the language spoken in the Netherlands and Northern Belguim. Holland is a state of Netherlands that speaks a dialect of Dutch. Dutch is closely related to German and a little more distantly English. Dutch people are a very progressive society, so somewhere in our vocabulary we will have some phrases that have something to do with their progressive lifestyle.
Our Dutch categories include:-
Greetings and Salutations:-
Hoe gaat het me je?
How are you?
Nog een prettige dag [toegewenst], Een goede dag verder
Have a nice day
In ieder stadje een ander schatje
In every town another girl (treasure)
Wil je met me wadlopen?
Will you go mudwalking with me?
Why would we want to ask someone if they wanted to go mudwalking with you?, you may ask. In the north of Holland, Frisia as it’s called mudwalking is a sport. You might want to ask a girl to go for a romantic mudwalk with you.
In The Bar
Deze drank wordt geadviseerd voor hen die wienig bloed in hun alcoholsysteem hebben
This drink is recommended for those with very little blood in their alcohol system
Wat is de sterkste rook op dit menu?
What is the strongest smoke on the menu?
As a progressive society the Dutch have what are called Coffee Shops. If you want to buy coffee you go to a cafe. We give you some vocabulary to use in the coffee shops.
The usual section we have for vocabulary for getting things off your chest.
Have a nice life
U hebt de intelligentie van een huisbaksteen

Having a laugh
This is our section for saying silly things to make people laugh.

Typical sayings from the Dutch language
Het vriest dat het krakt
It’s freezing like it’s cracking
Hij eet van twee walletjes
He’s eating from 2 dikes/walls (to be cheating)
These 2 sayings contain themes that you would find only in flat and cold Holland. You need to know how to say that it is completely cold and a good expressions about a dike.
Frans zegt tegen Frans in het Frans ‘is Frans in het Frans Frans?’ ‘Nee,’ zegt Frans tegen Frans in het Frans, ‘Frans is in het Frans Français’ .
Frans (boy’s name) says to Frans in French ‘is French in French French?’ ‘No,’ says Frans to Frans in French, ‘French in French is Français!’.
Als een potvis in een pispot pist, heb je een pispot vol met potvispis.
If a sperm-whale pees into a piss-pot, you’ll have a piss-pot full of sperm-whale piss.
A note for pronunciation, the ‘g’ in Dutch is quite hard to pronounce so good luck with it
I hope you have a good look through our Dutch vocabulary, “Kijken kijken niet kopen-Looking, looking but not buying”. It has taken a lot of work to get the pages online and organised, so at first they may be a few errors. As with all our dictionaries there will be more added over time as we receive more and get help from our followers.
We hope you to can contribute to our cause
