Adjective[edit]

vegetarisch (not comparable)

  1. vegetarian (relating to the type of diet eaten by vegetarians)

Usage notes[edit]

  • While vegetariër is the standard noun to refer to someone who follows a vegetarian diet, vegetarisch is also not uncommonly used to refer to people. Thus, "ben je vegetarisch?" (are you vegetarian?) might be used to ask someone if they eat a vegetarian diet instead of the more standard "ben je een vegetariër?" (are you a vegetarian?). However, since vegetarisch in standard Dutch refers only to food and not to the people who follow a vegetarian diet, this usage of vegetarisch to refer to people is often considered incorrect.
