Why does Nederland have no definitive article before it, but yet it translates to 'THE Netherlands' ?
it's an English feature that's not related to the Dutch language
Well, you'll have to ask that to the English language, not to the Dutch one.
Is this what you're greeted to when you visit Narnia?
Unfortunately, I'm definitely not :(
Holland, as far as I was told by friends is also valid as country name. In soccer they support Holland and not the Netherlands.
Probably because two syllables are easier to shout than three (Nederland), and we have all kinds of 'nice' songs like 'Hup Holland Hup' which remind us to use Holland instead of Nederland/The Netherlands during football games.
Holland is a part of the Netherlands
I thought Holland was just a part of the Netherlands
why doesnt it accept Holland
Holland is a part of The Netherlands, I'm pretty sure
Holland is a province in the Netherlands.
Because holland is slang and not a proper term, its a province inside nederland
So Nederland refers to the country and Nederlands refers to the language
Nederlands or nederlands is the SAME
The question says nederland not nederlands
