That is what I thought. Suppose your Dutch is very basic, you just arrived in Amsterdam by plane, it is the morning, the waiter is asking what you would like: "goedendag, sap". I would order somehow like that.

November 9, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/littleblueduck

This could be a little less rude if you imagine it being an answer: - Hello, what would you like to order? - Hello, juice. But yes, probably a tourist who forgot the word "please".

March 24, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/VookMon

are you trying to say the comma is supposed to indicate someone wants juice and this is NOT adressed to the juice itself?

... I'm still not convinced :

but yeah, allright.. there's quite the pause after "good day" and he makes a full stop after "sap"

now I'm disillusioned and almost dissapointed too :\ sniff :'(

LOL! So funny! :) I do imagine it will make complete sense if there was a question mark instead of a full stop? Being Afrikaans we use it in that way, although adding a word or two more maybe. Something like "Goeie more, sap vir jou?" but if you are in a hurry it's similar to the English "Good morning. Juice?"

November 9, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Robbadob

I'm pretty sure nobody would say "Good morning. Juice?" in English. It would always be "Good morning, juice please" or "could I have some juice" etc. Whether this applies to Dutch I don't know.

    Does sap have two meanings? Good day, juice just seems like an odd sentence.

    December 10, 2014

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Berkamin

    Before introducing all the words with the letter G, it would really help if you would explain some of the pronunciation ahead of time. Until the pronunciation is explained a bit, hearing all those -ij combos and g pronounced like h leaves the novice with a lot of cognitive dissonance.

    Also, I have a historical linguistics question: how did Dutch end up with g having the h sound? For two adjacent letters to have the same pronunciation seems really odd to me.

    January 4, 2015

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ataltane

    Well, sounds don't change in languages based on their closeness in the alphabet, as writing is secondary to spoken language.

    Short answer: it's not that strange. The sound you're hearing isn't a h, it's what might be written in English as gh. The sound typically represented by the letter g is a voiced velar stop and the sound you're hearing here is a voiced velar fricative. The main difference is that the second has less tension at the back of the mouth.

    February 16, 2015

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dim-ond-dysgwr

    As ataltane says, Dutch g and h are not in fact the same: in je hoed is goed (your hat is good) hoed and goed have different sounds: Dutch h is like English h; Dutch g is articulated with the same part of the tongue as English g but (not to be too technical about it) the sound is "scraped" rather than being a complete stop-and-release.

    November 25, 2015

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ChrisStehl

    I appreciate this because the words starting with G did sound like they started with H on this site.

    When I was in Amsterdam, "Goedendag" is not popular and some friends (native Amsterdamers) taught me, "Goedemiddag" sounds good to make a difference from German... but They don't greet to the juice!!!!

    July 29, 2014

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TheSnark

    O, nou begrijp ik het. Ze bedoelen: Goedendag sap! You say Hi to your juice. The comma should not be there.

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/reventador

    I have been always thinking about this sentence as a situation in which a man enters a small grocery shop. He always takes the same sort of juice and the seller knows that very well. So he just says "goedendag" as a greeting and adds just "sap" to confirm that he will take the same thing as always. ;)

    Hi Chelsey, please remember that volunteers have to clean the forums and there are over 300,000,000 users on Duolingo. When people leave casual comments that aren't asking a question related to the sentence or answer it, it creates clutter. When everyone does that, it consumes thousands of volunteer hours a year. Here are some Tips for using the Sentence Discussions. Thanks!

    No prob! After posting this, I realized this whole sentence discussion was full of casual comments. It can certainly be confusing how to use the SDs when they get cluttered. I can see how you got the wrong impression. The desktop website has a discussion forum that, while still for discussing language, is not nearly as constrained as the SDs. https://forum.duolingo.com/ :)

    September 23, 2014

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Neptunium

    Why are both "Hello" and "Good day" accepted for "Goedendag", but not "bye"? "Good day" in English only means "goodbye", and never "hello". If "Goedendag" only means "hello" and not "goodbye", then "good day" should not be listed as a possible translation of "goedendag"

    October 10, 2014

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/knittingarch

    Native English speaker here. Good Day can be used for both hello and goodbye. Granted it's a bit more formal as hello and used much more rarely than it used to be. Think of Jane Austen for usage: "Good day, sir. Lovely weather we're having."

    October 12, 2014

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Usagiboy7

    This is Dutch, not English. So, maybe the Dutch don't use "good day" for both greeting and farewell like it is in English. I'm not saying this for certain, as I'm new to the language. But, it's good to keep in mind that phrases don't always carry identical function from language to language. :)

    November 28, 2018

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Boudicababe

    Good day is a generally greeting in English. We did used to use this as a polite hello but has now fallen out of common use. It is technically correct.

It showed that I made a mistake and by correct answer there was given a notice: "For good afternoon, the Dutch greeting "goedenmiddag" is more appropriate|". Did creators make a mistake on this explanation, because in lesson "goedenmiddag" is written as "goedemiddag", but now it is explained as "goedeNmiddag".

    Soo, it tells me the correct answer for this is 'good morning', and 'good afternoon' is a wrong one.

    It sounded something like "Goedendag, essap" to me. What is this vowel at the beginning? or ist it a contraction of "een sap"?

    Goedendag, sap

    is pronounced as "Goedendag eh sap" I am native Dutch and i don't understand a word they are saying.

    Ähh, the female text-to-speech voice is pronouncing this WAY wrong. I guess it's not so bad to pronounce the "n," since some people do pronounce it here, but really? Pronouncing "sap" as the name of the letter S, and then "ap?" That's, ähh... pretty self-explanatory.

    Sounds like "goedendag en sap"
