Overal zie ik "op=op" in reclames en affiches. Wat betekent dat? Ik ben maar nieuwsgierig. (does nieuwsgierig mean curious? :? and can I really use maar as just?

En...

If we happen to have a king, do we still have a queens day? Or should we call it kings day? :D

Hoi Reptile,

1. Op = op: See Bill's explanation

2. 'Nieuwsgierig' betekent inderdaad 'curious'.

3. Je kunt 'maar' meestal gebruiken als vertaling voor 'just'. Er zijn ook andere vertalingen mogelijk. In jouw zin, zou ik eerder 'gewoon' gebruiken.

I am just curious (I am 'simply' curious) = Ik ben gewoon nieuwsgierig

Groetjes :-)
