Also, underwear are always referred to as broekes [brooooookeys with a rolled "r"]. Junk or messes are always krubetje [krubetcha] or rumeltje, or just "crubbies" for short.
Aw, the Dutch call them broekes too! Lekker. Except, I believe we spell it broekies. Our Canadian neighbours were completely lost when my mother told the story about the time when my sister took off her broekies at a dinner party and paraded them around the guests.

We also say kijk! Only difference is in the spelling (kyk.) I sometimes shout out "Kyk hoe val die dripples!" to my friends when it starts raining, as that was part of an old Afrikaans nursery rhyme I sang as a kid. They don't get it .

I had typed "broekies" and then changed it b/c I wasn't sure. I have no clue how to spell these words because we only ever say them, and some of them aren't "real" Dutch, just an old, old family dialect.

I always do my laundry at my grandparent's on Sundays and one day my grandpa, who is very stern, very matter-of-fact, and very Dutch says as we're all at the table "Lies, you lost some tiny broekies behind the wash machine last Sunday."

Some of our words, like that, we're so used to, I forget normal people have no idea what I'm saying. When I was younger, I was writing a story for a class and for some reason I had to write about a "junk drawer". I said "Mom, how do you spell 'rumeltje'?" and she said, "Why? You can't use that word in your homework."

I'm probably mangling the spelling but "Shekka bavaka shaw" is Yiddish for "Shut your mouth please" I think, but I love saying it so it doesn't matter.

"SOD OFF YOU GROTTY LITTLE WANKER" is another fave of mine, but that's not a language, that's just cockney slang
