List of the most common Dutch vocabulary words

  1. de [article] (the) Dutch has two definite articles, “de” and “het”, the choice of which to use depends on the grammatical gender of the corresponding noun.
  2. het [article] (the) The Dutch language has two grammatical genders: common and neuter. The definite article “de” is for nouns which have the common gender, while “het” is used for nouns which have the neuter grammatical gender.
  3. zijn [verb] (to be) In most languages, the verb “to be” ranks near the top of the most frequently used words, and this is true in Dutch as well.
  4. van [preposition] (from) Another reason why this is such a common Dutch word is that it often appears in Dutch names, for example “van Gogh”.
  5. een [article] (a) This is the indefinite article in Dutch. It stays the same regardless of the grammatical gender of the corresponding noun.
  6. en [conjunction] (and) In Dutch, as in most languages, the most common words are generally short. This linguistic phenomenon is called the “brevity law” or “Zipf's law of abbreviation”.

  9. te [preposition]
  10. met [preposition] (with)
