Pronunciation[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

From eastern Middle Dutch boke, boeke, from Old Dutch *buoka, from Proto-Germanic *bōkijǭ. Western varieties of Dutch, including generally Standard Dutch, do not have umlaut of long vowels. The eastern variety with umlaut was probably adopted to avoid homonymy with boek.
