A citizen would be mighty tasty right about now.
I literally almost wrote "the burger". And then I thought... "hand on - burgers have nothing to do with people words!"
De burger is lekker?
I like ketchup on my citizen.
I got a correct for putting „the burger“… Can that be right?
Same. 'Burger' can mean hamburger.
Same... Funny, I guess NL view their citizens like a tasty burger? o.0 Or did I miss something?
Oh, so that's where burgemeester comes from. citizen (burger) + master (meester)
I actually think it's more likely master of the "burg" (borough, eg. Hamburg, Johannesburg, etc.), otherwise it would have been burgeRmeester :)
Your etymology is correct, and from the Dutch we get the English word 'burgher'
Happy to see we all are thinking of food
Shouldn't civilian be a correct answer here as well?
