Editorial Reviews


“As a kid in New York’s Mohawk Valley I played along the laag kill, called out Kip, Kip, Kip! to our chickens at feeding time, talked to friends on their stoeps after school, and got winklehawks in my blue jeans from scrambling through barbed wire fences. It wasn’t until years later that I realized how many Dutch expressions survived in my dialect. This book is a linguistic treasure chest for anyone who grew up in the area covered by the Dutch colony of New Netherland.”

(Charles Gehring, New York State Library)

Format: Paperback
An entertaining and informative book especially for anyone who loves Dutch culture or is interested in American history and language. The author traces Dutch Immigration to America, shows where the largest settlements led to numerous Dutch Place names still in use today and lists the origins of numerous words contributed by Dutch immigrants to English still in use today. Important words like waffle,noodles,turkey,caboodle and the all important cookieStroopwafels - 20 Dutch Caramel Syrup Waffle Cookies.
