Dutch[edit]

Pronunciation[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

Probably from Middle Low German böke, from Old Saxon bōka, or from eastern Middle Dutch boke, boeke, from Old Dutch *buoka. Not a 'native' Dutch word judging from the presence of a long umlauted vowel, which does not normally occur in Dutch. Both descend from Proto-Germanic *bōkijǭ.

Noun[edit]

beuk m (plural beuken, diminutive beukje n)

  1. beech

Etymology 2[edit]

Variant of buik.

Noun[edit]

beuk m (plural beuken, diminutive beukje n)
