The English equivalent would be more in the “true” sense of reconciling with what the other person said, although perhaps it is only my Australian slang. The word can also be used as a question when checking that someone is sure of something. This word can be used to answer almost any question. My advice, if you don`t talk to a 21-year-old girl: Don`t use the word “man” in a sentence. It`s as annoying as the Americans who use “dude” in every sentence. Thank you for your comments! Haha agrees. Struggled to explain to people both “hoor” and explained “hoor” to me. It`s a funny word. There is a strong agreement that the “man” thing could be regional. Have noticed this in some groups and not in others. Haha ja seems to be right, it looks like there should have been “gezel” inside. I also wanted to put “Toch” in, but keep the article short and sweet 😉 This word means more or less the same as lekker, but it refers more to the things you do. Everything from a new book, a vacation or a nice cycle.
This word can be used for almost anything. Pretty much all the good is lekker. If applied to the food, it means that the food was tasty. Well, I certainly appreciate your attempt to analyze the meaning of words, but don`t overmo read “man.” And please note the intonation in Dutch, because it can completely upset the meaning of a word. Z.B. Lekker dan! This certainly means that something is not lekker/nice in general. When someone said, “I had a puncture,” you could respond out of sympathy “lekker dan.” It would not be considered sarcastic, which it is licked. Mooi and lekker are often used in combination with the weather (in Dutch), Leuk never used. A few more z.B.: -Leuk hoor, depending on the intonation (I couldn`t put its meaning on concrete!), either means that it`s really not beautiful at all, z.B. if you come across the new dress. But before she pours out, when she showed you her new dress, “leuk hoor” would be a kind of neutral compliment.
– Mooi is dat – you don`t think it`s mooi at all. Z.B. if promised, st to do and it turns out that it will not show “mooi is dat” your displeasure. -Nou – often, if answers, it will start with “nou”, the equivalent of “good” -helemaal – mooi, lekker or leuc you hear a lot now. At Z.B, the children went to a party, and they did an artistic project. Reaction: helemaal erleuk. Personally, I get jeuk (itches) of this type of Leuk I could continue forever, but it must remain gezelzel, anders is het mooi niet leuk meer, hoor! […] We would try to teach you some decent Dutch words (probably seven!) in an article on the Dutch language. We would give you the true meaning and what it is literally […] Are you trying to learn Dutch, but you just can`t get your head around scratching Gs and strange word series? Sometimes it can make the world different when it comes to speaking a new language, so here are some simple phrases to make you vibe.
To give you an idea of how it works in a conversation, I wrote an example of a conversation below. I wish I could say that it is an exaggeration, but it is pretty much a verbatim transcript of a real conversation that I have heard. Thank you for staying with us throughout the article – you have to do a good job of learning Dutch! (or you were just waiting for the word Gezellig 😉 Don`t worry, we saved it for our next article) Now you`ve learned the basics, give us an episode on Twitter if you want to stay up to date on how to learn Dutch.
