A group of people in Western Europe who are experts at turning marshlands and estuaries into fertile farmland and residential areas.
The Netherlands is an excellent example of Dutch ingenuity and genius, because most of the country is built on land reclaimed from the violent, storm-ridden North Sea.

The language we speak in The Netherlands, Belgium, Suriname, South Africa, and the Netherlands Antilles. The Netherlands is also known as Holland.

"Dutch" In Dutch: Nederlands.

Anyone who says that Dutch is German for German is wrong and wouldn't even recognise Dutch.

So unlike a lot of US, UK or other native English-speaking people think, Dutch is NOT German! Dutch may be a little simmular to German, but it's more closely related to English.

Dutch is a Germanian language, just like German and English. (french, italian, and spanish are romanian languages).

Dutch is more closely related to English on the grammar, but the vocab is more Germanish. Dutch is in between English and German, but still is a whole language on its own - it's NOT English and NOT German.

Dutch is a lanuage, spoken by about 20 milion spread over The Netherlands, Belgium and the Netherlands antilles.

Because of the many conflicts and wars between England and The Republic of the Seven United Netherlands (as it was then called), 17th century English knew many expressions containing the word to describe something in a derogatory manner. Some of these expressions are still used.
