A Conversation for Dutch Grammar

Kheldar (Don't hate the media, Become the media)

Just one small addition to this subject...when making certain words plural by adding "en", you sometimes have to double the last letter of the word, before you can add "en"
For instance:
trap - trappen (stairs)
vis - vissen (fish)

The other option, when the word has two of the same vowels before the last letter, one vowel has to go before "en" can be added
For instance:
banaan - bananen (bananas)
brood - broden (bread)

And, of course there are the odd ones out, that end with two vowels
For instance:
koe - koeien (cows)

Good luck on the entry smiley - smiley
