Second reference to yellow clogs in this skill? First the Foundation for Children Without Yellow Clogs, now this!
Why is "The Dutch wears yellow clogs" incorrect?
Because Nederlandse refers to a female, the same with Duitse, Engelse, Spaanse etc.
And how can I say "Dutchman"?
Englishman = Engelsman, is a Dutchman - Nederlandsman then?
How could you just say, "He is Dutch"? We learned how to say "He is Spanish" or "She is American", but what about Dutch?
How would one say, "The Dutch wear yellow clogs" as just people in general?
How about "The dutch wears yellow clogs"?
It doesn't work as a singular noun
i would very much like a reference to the "flying dutchman", come on.
a dutchman does mean a man from holland in old english, right?
This has got to be the most frustrating lesson yet. I had never seen the word Spaniard before and don't think I will ever see it again!
So "Nederlander" implies male, "Nederlandse" implies female?
