voorleser

It can't make its mind of if it's English or German. The Wikipedia link suggests this is valid in English, but it uses the header ==English== but {{de-noun}}. Mglovesfun (talk) 15:22, 2 August 2010 (UTC)

Oops, I fixed it. - Theornamentalist 15:39, 2 August 2010 (UTC)
If it's capitalized it needs to be at Voorleser. Also is it really from German? It looks more like Dutch. Mglovesfun (talk) 16:24, 2 August 2010 (UTC)
I thought the word was originally german, but was used by the dutch as well, I may be wrong though. - Theornamentalist 16:40, 2 August 2010 (UTC)
I'm going to follow Wikipedia's eminently plausible assertion that this is Dutch, and assume from my limited knowledge of that language that this spelling comes from a time before Dutch spelling was standardized, and that the word would be (and perhaps is in fact) spelled voorlezer today. (If it were German it would be Vorleser.) —Angr 14:07, 26 April 2012 (UTC)
