Goedenavond, bon soir, good evening,
Wow, a thesis on demonstrative pronouns? Wow, that would be kind of cool. Yes, I am a bit strange. :)
Yes, I think I understand what you mean about trying to learn too much at once. Knowledge is so juicy you just want to eat it all at once. :wink:
Groetjes,

No, Marco, definitely not boring! Dank je wel for explaining it so well! I wanted to give that lesson myself but was too tired to try and do that yesterday and I don't know as many Dutch words as you do. :razz:
Marco, I am very pleased that you pay attention in school since so many others do not. :)

Bonjour, hallo, Nathalie! Wow, sounds like we both love languages! I was exactly the same, got curious about Dutch because of my friends, but now I think het Nederlands is so beautiful. It feels like a brother language to English. I studied French in school for about ten years. My French is not as g...

Hoi, Tom!
You have an excellent point about English. I totally agree with you, and I think it is proper English. I am one of those people who believes that if you say it is a word, then it is a word! :)
So, I guess we can have double diminutives then. very cool
Groetjejes :laugh:

Hoi, Tom.
I love the idea of diminutive diminutives.

Would be nice if that was proper. lol

Thank you, Bieneke for telling me about the document.
Thank you, Wim, for writing it! I can now try to impress my Dutch friends with superlatives and such. :o

Is there info about adjectives and adverbs?

Hello, Bieneke and all.
I was reading dutchgrammar.com and I cannot find any explanations about adjectives and adverbs. Am I missing them? If so, please give me the link. :)
Thanks!

Salutations, of course. I think my brain must have been on vacation. I didn't know that particular word, but I should have guessed. Oh well.
Thanks Tom for the explanation! :grin:

I found an online demonstration of a Dutch text-to-speech engine. I have to say that I would prefer to learn the language from real people. :wink: I guess synthesizers might be useful at some point, but I still need real people, and of course I will have to actually try and speak. :o I absolutely mu...

Hello, Barbara. Thanks for your lovely message! I do have the ability to spell out words, and it can do phoenitic spelling, b bravo, c charlie, etc. I can access most websites; only a few are totally useless and some have mostly graphics so they are kind of boring. :) I love to be able to use the wr...

Hallo, everybody! This is going to be a rather long post, so if you are busy or don't feel like reading, please skip it. :grin: I have a bunch of Dutch friends on the internet! They all speak, or at least write, such amazing English. I decided that since they knew my language, I could strengthen the...
