Getting this wrong makes perfect sense because the West Germanic languages all use very similar words for or:
English: or, German/Yiddish: oder, Dutch: of.
The Scandinavian languages are using an etymologically unrelated word for and which in their case unfortunately has developed to sound similar:
Archaic English: eke, German: auch, Yiddish: oykh, Dutch: ook, Danish: oc, Swedish och.
The meaning of this word in the West Germanic languages is also.
Try Hun= hunny (like you'd call your wife) and Han= Hans the male name
I still keep getting a "typo" for spelling "goodnight" as one word. http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/goodnight
