Your Guide to Dutch Abbreviations Posted by tiffany on Aug 3, 2013 in Dutch Vocabulary
In last week’s post, we went over afkortingen (abbreviations) for chattaal (chat language) – think BRB, LOL, etc… but in Dutch.
In a comment on the post, Peter reminded us that there are many, many afkortingen employed in every-day Dutch language that can sometimes make you feel like you’re trying to crack a secret code.
And there are so many of them that’s it’s difficult to keep track.
This can be especially frustrating when they appear in important paperwork or official communications.
They’re the a.s.a.p.’s, the r.s.v.p.’s, the p.s.’s, and the etc.’s of the dutch language.
Here, we’ve done the cracking for you on some of the afkortingen you’re most likely to come across.
