Usage notes[edit]

  • It is considered impolite to refer to someone’s head with kop as that word normally only refers to the head of animals. The word hoofd should be used instead. In some dialects, however, kop is the normal word for head.
  • For animals, the usual term is kop, although for horses, which are considered noble animals, hoofd is generally used.
