Netherlandish?

Postby Ranja » Mon 10.24.2011 7:12 am

「オランダ語」は英語でDutchだと思っていたら、ALCで検索するとNetherlandishと出てきました。一方、私が持っているLongman dictionaryにNetherlandishは載っていません。
この二つはまったくinterchangeableなのでしょうか?
それともニュアンス等に違いがありますか?

I've never heard anyone use the word 'Netherlandish'. Maybe it's got some specialised usage, but in every day speech 'Dutch' is the only adjective used to mean 'from Holland'. It's also used for the language, オランダ語.

As JaySee-san queried above "Netherlandish" does have specialised usage.

Netherlands (terminology)
The English adjective 'Netherlandish' means 'from the Netherlands'. It is normally used in reference to paintings produced anywhere in the Low Countries during the 15th and early 16th century, which are collectively called Early Netherlandish painting (in Dutch Vlaamse primitieven, Flemish primitives—also common in English before the mid 20th century). Later art and artists from the southern Catholic provinces are usually called Flemish and those from the northern Protestant provinces called Dutch, but art historians sometimes use 'Netherlandish art' for art produced in both areas between 1400 and 1830.

JaySeeさん、chikaraさん、回答ありがとうございます。

そうすると、Netherlandishという言葉は、主に「ネーデルランド絵画」のような特殊な場合にのみ使用され、「オランダ語」という意味では使用されないということですね。
ALCには、ときどき変な訳語が混ざっていますね。
勉強になりました。 :wink:
