I said the word today to all my relatives and the all recognized it, but no one knew exactly what it means. So it's definitely our form of Dutch/Gronings. My mom is going to figure it out....

Just out of curiosity, do you guys know any of these words? (sorry about the spelling, I'll try my best!):

benoud = if you are sad or melancholy, we say you are "benout"

puppetje = we say this for a sad, or benoud looking child but I think it means a rag doll (?)

luppie = no idea how to spell that one so that's how we say it, like "puppie" and for us it means our blankie or stuffed animal we carry around when we're young

suessen and soniken = we say this when kids are whining. My mom says there's no English verb that is equivalent and it means to repeat the same word over and over. So, if I were to whine constantly about wanting candy, my mom would say "stop your suessen and soniken!"

rumeltje/crubetje = our junk, like at home our junk drawer is the rumeltje drawer. We also say crubetje, but we're told that one is some slang unique to us. We also call crumbs or little lint fuzzies "crubbies"

keike sinc/ kieke sinc = (no clue if that's spelled ever remotely right!) means "look!" or "look over there!" Some people use the "ie" sound and some use the "ei" sound.



These are words I've grown up with and had to teach my boyfriend after getting some strange looks.

I do know the word 'benauwd' (I think it's pronounced the same). That means more something like 'feeling choked' though and is not immediately connected to sadness (more to anxiety).

Poppetje, literally translated as small doll, but you can address it affectionally to a child.

Doesn't ring a bell, but I've heard the strangest things for the blankie/stuffed animal stuff.

I think this is 'zeuren en zaniken'. Whining in English (repeated for extra emphasis)

Rommeltje: junk-like. Rommel is junk in Dutch. No this does not equate to my house.

Kijk eens hier! (Look over here!). Although, some Dutch dialect substiture the 'ij' with 'ie', which will then sound something like 'Kiek es hier!'

Rono will probably know a bit more of the dialects those up north speak.

C ya!

Marty

Cool that you recognized them! We often have a hard time studying our words since most of them were taken to America hundreds of years ago and then changed here overtime and now sometimes barely resemble modern Dutch or their original spellings/pronounciations.

I think it's "lappie" instead of "luppie"
which would be the word we use for a piece of cloth

otherwise I agree with Martijn
it could also be "zeugen en zanikken" instead of "zeuren en zanikken"
though zeuren en zanikken is used more often

Good suggestions Salome.

Do you still have a lappie at night, when it's dark?
