I recently found out about this funny blog. It is written by a British woman who moved to the Netherlands and married a Dutchman. She writes about her life in the Netherlands and the typical Dutch stuff. This article is about innocent Dutch words that may sound rude to English speaking people. ;-) http://bitterballenbruid.com/2014/12/17/10-rude-sounding-dutch-words/

I've been practicing the cursed vowel combinations with my Dutch tutor- you know, deur, door/man. maan, that sort of thing. Vak/vaak is on list and every time he says "vak" I do a double take!

Not very impressed, but funny to see the bad mind of some British and how funny English as a language is .... :-)
