Is there an efficient way to remember how to write and say this word? Of which words is it constructed?
Hmmm I'm afraid not. If you break the word down:
- Beziens - a construction of 'zien' (to see)
- Waardig - worthy
- Heden - things
This is the only help I can offer unfortunately. It's just a matter of repeating it over and over again! If you forget the word when talking to someone, you can just work around it by asking: zijn er hier leuke dingen te zien? (are there nice/fun things to see here).
This way they won't even notice ;)
just when I thought there could be no word worse than "verpleegkundige". . .
Me too, but I still love these long words. They give you a feeling that you've already mastered the language, since you can spend effort on learning such strange words like "verpleegkundige" or "bezienswaardigheden"...
Oh I hate this word I can't seem to remember the order and amount of letters... If I'm lucky I get a typo haha
Try taking it in parts. I managed to spot "zien" (see) and "swaar" (heavy), which extends to "swaardig" (worthy). "heid" translates roughly to "of", so "swaardigheid" indicates "worthy of seeing". I'm not sure exactly what the "be" prefix means, but adding that and then pluralizing the whole mess to "beswaardigheden" finally arrives at "things worthy of being seen."
guess you mean "be + ziens + waardig + heden", waardig is heavy, swaardig unfortunately doesn't mean anything
