Some sentences are supposed to make you laugh.
A dull course is merely demotivating ^_^.

And yes, I have talked to my breakfast on occassion...
What are you to do when you don't have any pets? ;)


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

I talk to the chairs when my shin keeps hitting them. ;)


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

I'm sure you don't say good day to it. I'm imagining something much coarser. ;)


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

Yep, more like "Agh, you stupid chair!" No curses from these lips. :)


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

I don't talk to my furniture... they sometimes speak to me...


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

Do they squeak? If so they might need tightening


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

This is Dutch. Not German.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LisetteCal8

more like vera**ende.. rot stool!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Flico3

I talk to my guitar


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BrianKoche1

As long as you don't call your guitar Lucille. There can only be one Lucille and she belongs to BB King!


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

Well it worked. That came out of nowhere and made me laugh :P


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NickM98

Just wondering. Could this be a really rude form to ask for a juice as well? Haha, I thought it might mean that before your comment.


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

Good day, juice. We meet again.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/sweater-strypes

"The Good, the Bad, and The Ugly theme starts playing"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DylanSmith2017

Or, as I quietly approach a snack cart on a busy Amsterdam street I exclaim "HAHA! GOEDEMORGEN OLIEBALLEN!"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/StefanBaer2

Mmmmmm olieballen!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BrianKoche1

Yummy, the Dutch version of Zeppolies.


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

juice says Attack!


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

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.


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".


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 :'(


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

Really funny :D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Tabz6

Or you could say "Goedendag, ik wil sap."


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

Or "Goedendag, sap alstublieft."


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BrianKoche1

Sinesappel sap of appel sap?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/VanHoof666

It could be all kind of juices, but in the Netherlands most of the time they mean orangejuice when they say 'sap'. Otherwise to would specify the kind of juice.

But it is not 'sinesappel sap' but 'sinaasappelsap' (without space and with 4 a's). It is also 'appelsap' (without space' and not 'appel sap'. In Dutch you don't use spaces if someting is one worth.

In Flanders they use 'appelsiensap' instead of 'sinaasappelsap' and 'appelsien' (for the fruit) instead of 'sinaasappel.


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

Yes, you could interpret it that way. ;)


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

Dit is zo grappig haha :D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JamesT771

I was thinking that, like a very rude guy in a restaurant asking for juice hahaha


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

Not so rude if the guy wishes you a good day, no?


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

just not as talkative.. huh yeah

just like a teacher might say "form a full sentence, please"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PaCa826187

I think you're right on this one. Although, the rudeness is culture-depedent. I feel bad for people who have an actual question about grammar who have to wade through dozens of people saying 'Hurr-hurr! I'm too dense to parse English or Dutch.'


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

There's no grammar here. It's not a sentence.


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

Not all communication comes in complete sentences. "Goedendag, sap" is a complete statement. School teaches us a way to communicate. It does not teach us the only way to communicate. :)


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

why say lot word when few word do trick?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/VanHoof666

P_Azul,

there are real situations in which the use of this sentence is normal.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BrianKoche1

P_Azul When I get to visit the Netherlands, I will be speaking with real people. Conversations do not always happen in complete sentences. If the all important comma wasn't there, then it would be a nonsensical bit of communication. The exception being that someone named Sap was being greeted.

But picture this. A man who is a regular morning customer at the Dutch equivalent of a diner sits down at the counter after 16 hours of flight. He looks up with a sleepy grin at Trijntje his favorite waitress. "Goedendag, sap.", he says as his sleepy eyes can barely stay open.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/VanHoof666

Yes, it could. It would be a combination of an order to get juice and a friendly 'goedendag'. It would be strange in many situations, but it is not nonsense and it can be used in some specific situations.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/dwingo1990

I actually know of a guy whose nickname is "Juice". To be completely honest, I don't know his real name, lolz.


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

good lord i know someone as well whos nickname is "juice" and whom I have no idea what their real name is o.o


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MegtheEgg58

There is a kid in my class named Hugh, but in spanish class we all got "Spanish Names" and his turned out to be pronounced "oogo" which we later found out was also Spanish for "Juice".


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ricgonz2006

Juice in Spanish is pronounced "hoogo," but close enough lol (Hugo and Jugo)


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

Good morning, juice. Orange you glad to be alive?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Spaceowl42

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

Nice! And I love your profile pic! I love Spongebob!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/yyx0725

This made my day! LOL


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Petrie1990

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?"


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.
[2019/04/03]


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LisetteCal8

that's not the issue. she says goedendag (mumble) sap...some of their words are not clear, but in this case, its an exta syllable that sounds like hah...


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

The female voice used is often unintelligible.

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hobbit22.9

    i assumed sap was someone's nickname, like "wassup juice?"


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Naylor1993

    Is this how the Dutch talk to their juice?


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

    What, you don't say hi to your breakfast?


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

    If you live in the US, your Rice Crispies talk to you at breakfast. You might as well be friendly with your juice.


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

    They say, "Help, we're melting. We only have five minutes left until we die..."


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

    They do in the UK too. :)


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

    And in Canada. : )


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

    I believe that in the Netherlands the Krispies say Pif! Paf! Pof! (in France, Cric! Crac! Croc! -- and in Finland, Riks! Raks! Poks!).


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Nordic-Cyclist

    I laughed too hard at this...

    And a goedendag to you too, brood.

    And the most important question of all, do you use the formal "U" or the informal "jij" when addressing your juice? ;)


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

    I'm pretty close to my juice, so I use jij.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RobGreene4

    Without being vulgar, you are letting the juice inside you. Closeness is assumed.


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

    I thought it was saying "sup" XD


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

    I thought either that, or Saab (a car manufacturer) :s


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

    One of the most useful sentences ;)

    Why?

    This made my day! Must tell my mom this very "essential" sentence before she goes to Netherlands.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PALewis88

    What do you do if your juice says "Goedendag" back to you?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jeanette802027

    Then take your medicine AFTER breakfast.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MikeD547513

    Good morning, juice. I love you and all of your juiciness


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/danita8705

    Ha! I played that over so many times thinking, surely they aren't saying juice?? After this I shall not second guess what I think I'm hearing so much. Thanks for the laugh, hope I find more!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Spaceowl42

    I do that same thing! I'm like "it can't be that!" And turns out it is. :-) this sentence is so funny! :-D happy learning! -Spaceowl42

    Life can be scary XD


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

    I see I'm not the only one who's a bit stumped with this lol.


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

    I don't know why but I imagine this being a less than unusual conversation in Dutch.


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

    That's just what people think, because they're still half asleep when they talk to their morning juice, and thus forget about it.


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

    Is saying hello to your juice a cultural thing in the Netherlands?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Lucster22

    I have no friends so I am going to talk to my glass of orange juice.

    Me: Good day, Juice Orange Juice: Good day, Lucisawesome. Me: How did you sleep? OJ: Good. The cat didn't drink me this time. How about you? Me: Good. Are you excited for the Patriots and Giants game tonight? OJ: Oh, you bet I am. Me: We have a test today in Dutch. OJ: Really? Me: Yeah. OJ: Poop Me: I always get stuck on one particular sentence. OJ: What sentence? Me: "Ik drinkt het sap." OJ: Oh, hee hee. Awkward silence Me: Gulp, gulp, gulp, gulp.

    . . . and good night, moon!


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

    At ''goedendag'' the ''n'' is pronounced? I don't hear it.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/faith46

    Neither do I, I just go with how they say it and try to remember it for the next time it crops up.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/agoodell818

    I will definitely use this sentence everyday. (Im VERY close to my breakfast)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/a-simile

    you should be polite to your juice at all times.


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

    Were you guys stoned when you made this sentence?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/k-athleen

    please never replace this sentence


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

    Sounds like "goedendag en sap"


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

    I thought the synthesized voice was saying "essap." I'm not sure if it's the right pronunciation or not.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ok2Bwhite

    Yes, i was sure i hard an "a" or phonetic "e" sound right between "Goodendag" and "sap", so i typed "Goodendag, een sap" but turns out there is no word inbetween, maybe the TTS is to blame?


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

    I expected it to accept juice, but I kept thinking there would be an alternate solution that's in more common usage.. Gahaha I was wrong.


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

    If I'm greeting my juice, why not greet the rest of my food? Goedendag brood! Maybe I should move to Holland; their breakfast rituals are mucg more interesting than American ones.


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

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


    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.


    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.


    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.


    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.


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

    I listened to this over and over and kept thinking, "Is this lady saying, 'good day, juice."?!


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

    Hey Juice don't make it bad, Take a sad song and make it better.,


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Deadpool723

    Makes me laugh how irrelevant this sentence is! :-)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/V.Devilus

    Is it hoo.den.dah or hoo.de.dah ?


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

    It is pronouned ɣujəˈdɑx


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

    OK, this could be legitimate -

    Waiter: "Good morning, what are you drinking?" Customer: "Good morning, juice."

    ... or homeboy is talking to his juice. I'm cool with that.


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

    here, in Belgium, i don't say "hello" to my juice, but it might be because i'm on the wallon side...

    What a silly sentence


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Deadpool723

    good day sandwich nice to meet you!

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sun-Wukong

    Clearly this is a quote from a conversation with OJ Simpson.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Doomification171

    Just to be clear: Dutch people aren't usually greeting their morning beverages.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ms.ishidam

    I hear "e" between "goedendag" and "sap". Does anyone hear it like me? What is this sound?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Marco253506

    I can hear that, too, and I have no clue.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Tom775782

    It sounds like she's saying an extra syllable before "sap" like "en sap" but that answer is not accepted...


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LisetteCal8

    soudns like goedendag hah sap.


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

    Why does the female voice say something like "ehsap" instead of "sap"? So confusing.


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

    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!!!!


    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/Kenzie_Long

    Well that made me laugh


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

    I am confused. Is it supposed to be a joke. Haha. I dont really get it.


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

    Yes, it's a joke. You're not supposed to talk to juice...


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

    What if the juice talks to you first?


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

    Sure you are! Sprinkle some humor into the morgen!


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

    This is just weird. I wonder if thats what dutch people say?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/n2fole00

    It's funny because sap is another name for a chump in my local dialect.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/81cheney

    They say Top of the morning to you, cheerio in England. So why not Good day,juice?


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

    Picture some english person talking to their cereal:"cheerio, cheerios"

    Sounds like a bad commercial for orange juice.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/v.neoleon.17

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/May.k

    This is my favourite one so far Haha


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

    So it doesn't accept "g'day". Doesn't seem fair for Aussies!


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

    who in the world says good day?

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

    What a very strange sentence


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

    And good morning, bread.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MegtheEgg58

    my initial reaction to this was, "Come on! I thought I was getting good at this, but this can't be right!" turns out it was.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Alexandra282954

    Do dutch people usually speak to their food?

    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. ;)


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

    Hence the introduction of the semicolon.

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Marco253506

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

    Good day, juice. Nice LSD trip yesterday.

    Goedendag, sap

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


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ms.ishidam

    I hear "e" between Goedendag" and "sap". I'd anybody can hear like me? ?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DevanM.Top

    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.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Franoise236022

    In French, we cannot say that : good day juice ! what does it mean ?

    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"


    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."


    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. :)


    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.

    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!

      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BrianKoche1

      Asked an answered several times. Read some of the older comments. Amongst the funny ones, there's some genuine answers and explanations.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BrianKoche1

      Pay attention to the placement of the comma. This is an example of spoken Dutch as opposed to literary written Dutch. If there wasn't a comma the person would indeed be saying Good Morning to an unspecified container and quantity of Juice. "Good morning juice." Now, with the comma strategically inserted it is likely an English speaking tourist has just woken up. He or she is not fully awake. He or she sits down at a table or counter. The tourist catches the waiter's eye, "Goedendag, sap.". It's the best, the tourist having just arrived and jet lagged, can manage. It is enough to get started.

      For those of you who have a long flight through multiple time zones, you may actually find yourself in a very similar situation. Being jet lagged, you may very well be lucky you don't say, "Goedemorgen, Ik ben geen banaan. Ik ken een sinaasappelsap het loopt. At which point your server, like most people believes it's kinder to be direct says,"Please, enough. You are murdering my language. I speak English better than your Dutch. Please order in English."

      No need to swear. Yes, at least one speaker currently has an extra syllable between "-dag" and "sap." No, we don't know why. Please try if you can report that.


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

      That extra syllable has been there since 2016 when I took Dutch for a trip to the Flemish part of Belgium. They certainly know about it and have decided for some reason not to change it.
