I like the fact that some words and phrases don’t have a Dutch equivalent, so they just use the English. It means that you can, sometimes, be surprised. Here are a few I noticed
- Focus group
- Pop-up shop
- Co-working space
- Pressure cooker
I’m not sure what ‘winkle’ means but it seemed to come up a lot. Thanks to all the people I met in Holland, by the way – not just for speaking such excellent English, but also for being so gracious about my lack of Dutch.
