Aha! NOW I know why "bruin" is an English synonym for "bear"! Very, very cool!

probably from the Dutch name for brown bears "bruine beren", I hate how you guys pronounce bruin as Bru-in :/

Dat haat ik ook. Bru-in is een manier om bier te maken. We're brewin' some beer.

When are you supposed to you 'wit' and 'witte'?

When an adjective comes after the noun, it does not get the additional -e, that is the case with wit and bruin in this sentence.

When an adjective comes before the noun, it gets the additional -e in most cases. Only before singular het woorden preceded by the indefinite article een (or one of a few other words, like geen or elk) it does not get the -e.

  • het witte konijn (het woord)
  • een wit konijn
  • de witte konijnen
  • witte konijnen
  • de witte koe (de woord)
  • een witte koe
  • de witte koeien
  • witte koeien
