Subject: RE: Help: Patrick O Briens Desolation Island
well - the online dictionaries show that all the words ending in -zaamheid are things like courage, intractibility, sutbborness, fidelity, etc.

bezwaar is "trouble"

"waak"doesn't show in my dictionary as a word or a prefix. it shows only as a suffix in "slovak"

My sense of Waakzaamheid as a name is "DOOM"
