Dutch[edit]

Pronunciation[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Middle Dutch ampt. Originally the same word as ambacht and possibly a mere variant of it. However, the fact that the earliest occurrences are found in texts by eastern writers, makes it likely that this form is a borrowing from Middle High German ambet, ambt, whence modern German Amt. See ambacht for more.

Noun[edit]

ambt n ‎(plural ambten, diminutive ambtje n)

  1. office, an official position
