I don't have the wisdom for a profesional, but in my opinion some words in this list could be german derivations. So the i think the "inserter" of the fellowing words should have a good explaintion why they are dutch and not german:

  • You are more than welcome to provide the full detailed etymologies of the above words if you know what they actually are. If you use the templates at WT:I2T#Webster_1913_Abbreviations to do so, the words will be categorized properly automatically. Many of these words are in this category because (various) Wikipedians asserted that they were derived from Dutch. If you can provide full and correct etymologies, and demonstrate how much better Wiktionary is than Wikipedia is at this sort of thing, please go ahead. See the etymologies of bull (which is, according to its article, indeed related to Dutch), iceberg, rucksack, and dollar for how to do this. Please don't touch the categorizations if you cannot provide proper detailed etymologies to replace them, though. Uncle G 22:15, 8 May 2005 (UTC)
