Trellum Posted October 27, 2014 Report Share Posted October 27, 2014 I made a short list to remind me when DE must be used There are many cases in which 'De'' must be used, actually about 75% of words are what I like to call ''De words''. Here is a short list with useful reminders of when and what kind of words are ''De'' words.1 - ALL plurals.2- All the professions.3- Obviously masculine or feminine words (there are exceptions, ie: het miesje)4- Vegetables, fruits, plants, trees, names of mountains and rivers.5- Nouns ending in -tie, -thie,-sie, -aar, -eur, -er and -or. 6- Words ending with: -ie, -ij, -heid, -teit, -a, -nis, -st, -schap, -de, -te, -iek, -ica, -theek, -iteit, -tuur, -stuur, -sis, -xis, -tis, -ade, -ide, -ode, -ude, -age, -ine, -se, -ea, -esse. 7 - Written out numbers and letters.If any native speaker notices a mistake, please feel free to correct me Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
