Subject: RE: origins: The Dutchman (Michael Smith): meanings?
I have heard people sing "Zyder Zee " when it should be "Zowder Zay " ; I must confess that I was taught the former in infant school geography lessons (circa 1952 !) , until I had Dutch lessons a few years ago ,as a result of which I can now pronounce "IjMuiden" quite well also !
