Here is a book for anyone tired of speaking flat, colorless, homogenized English. Pennsylvania Dutchman Gary Gates provides a glossary, read-aloud section, songs, recipes, and more in this delightful, “inwaluable” introduction to Dutch-ified English.Learn the meaning of “rutch” and “spritz,” what a “clod” and a “crotch” are, how to pronounce and make “Cussin Rache’s Snitz and Knepp,” and what has happened to food when it’s “all.” Spice up your vocabulary with delightful words and phrases, such as:• Grex: To complain, moan. “Ah, quit your grexing, you have a vonderful life.”• Face: Belief, religious conwiction. “Praise be! Rebecca has found her face in the Lord again!”• Gruntbecky: An expression of hard going. “Gruntbecky! It’s difficult to run in this hot sun.”• Nix nootz: A devilish, mischievous person. “Our daughter is a little nix nootz.”• Rupdawn: A massage. “A good rupdawn will take the ache away.”Tired of trying to conform to traditional speech patterns, Gary offers a warm and funny celebration of the unique Dutch culture in America.
