"The vehicles are big and interesting."

Translation:Køretøjerne er store og interessante.

It seems to have the same roots as the dutch 'tuig' (or the german 'zeug'). the dutch word means 'contraption'.


Interesting that the word for vehicle seems to include the word for toy.

    tøj in this sense just means something along the lines of thing.

    legetøj = playing thing = toy

    køretøj = driving thing = vehicle

    syltetøj = jam/preserve thing = jam

    værktøj = work thing = tool

    fodtøj = foot thing = footwear

    and so on...
