Many languages have picked up the Dutch word for a Turkish turban, though - tulipan Smile | :)

Also, beskøyter is adopted from Dutch; I do not know how you spell it in Dutch - in English it is biscuits. In Norwegian, beskøyter is not just any kind of biscuit, but a hard, very dry kind that can be stored for a long time aboard the ship - another name for it is skipskjeks ("kjeks" is the general term for biscuits).

Lots of other ship and sailing terms have Dutch origins. You have no reason to feel inferior Smile | :)
