Nice quiz, but here's a bug: Rucksack is not from Dutch rugzak, but from German Rucksack. As well may bulwark, keelhauling, smearcase, and still life be derived from the German words Bollwerk, kielholen, Schmierkäse (in which the pronunciation of the a also is closer), Stillleben. Thought forlorn was of German origin, too, but learned better now.

Most words that have to do with sea life have dutch origins, due to the Dutch influence in the 17th century as a sea faring nation. I can imagine that many other words have germanic origins, but then the Dutch brought them al over the world, whereas the Germans started their empirical politics a bit later in history :)

OK. Dutch is my first language, and I didn't get the majority of these but there's one thing that I know for sure: EZEL - means donkey or Jackass IJZEL - means easel
