Thank you Team of O. W. T.!
With thanks to Denise Nesbitt, who created ABC.For more interesting ABC posts click on the logo in the sidebar . This week we are looking for words beginning with IJ or Y.
The entrance( ingang) of this hospital.
The Dutch alphabet (equally for the Netherlands and Flemish Belgium; there is only one standard language and one alphabet) has 26 letters. The last three are x, y, z. In many Dutch primary schools they are taught as x ij z, and the y is called "Greek y" but pronounced "Griekse ei", or just "ij". Also "i-grec", which is a French loan. We have far more words starting with "ij"or "IJ"than with "y"or "Y ".Well, read my introduction please.
What I should like is: put the "ij"back in its rightful place and create a twenty-seventh letter, the letter "y ".I live near the rivers Lek and...IJssel. One of the hospitals in the neighbourhood is called "IJsselland Hospital".The IJsselland Hospital lies in the village of Capelle aan den IJssel. It was opened in 1991.
