Dutch[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Middle Dutch avent, avont, from Old Dutch avont, from Proto-Germanic *ēbanþs. Compare Low German Avend, German Abend, English even (evening), Danish aften, Swedish afton.

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

avond m (plural avonden, diminutive avondje n)

  1. evening, night

Usage notes[edit]

Just like German Abend, Dutch avond includes the hours until midnight. So while one says in English: We're having a beer tonight!, one would say in Dutch: We drinken vanavond een biertje!
