Blog Jaap Slager: That´s how the Frisian language crumbles


Hi C,

I can see where you’re coming from. I’ll think about it and see what springs to mind.
It’s funny though that you should mention how the well-being of their livestock is part of the day-to-day conversations of people in Amharic culture, as Frisia is a traditionally agricultural society of independent (important part of the so-called “Frisian Freedom”) livestock farmers as well. You may have heard of the world-famous Frisian Cow, that are all centrally registered with distinctive features and line of ancestry, as well as of the dairy products that for many centuries were Frisia’s main source of exports to its overseas English neighbors. As they say in England “Butter, bread, and green cheese is good English and good Frisian” (in Frisian: bûter, brea en griene tsiis).
