Dutch Language

A few points on some Dutch language rules. Let's do a test. Read out loud "George W. Bush jr." You said: george w bush junior. You automatically pronouced jr in full. It's the same in Dutch, as well as a few other abreviations e.g. Jan Davidsz de Heem. It means and is pronounced as "Jan David's zoon de Heem" (the son of David de Heem). Therefore, each time when you see ...sz behind a middle or last name you pronounce it [middle name or last name]'s zoon. Pronouced SOHN,
