Difference Between Oud & Oude???

Post by Arsonist » Fri 18th Feb 2011 03:23 am

Oud-Zuid & Oude Zijde.
Two different locations with similar spelling.
Translation with pronunciation would be greatly appreciated! :)

I'm no expert, but the difference between Oud and Oude has to do with where in the sentence it lies.

Oud means old. Oude zijds means "old side".

In Dutch, if the adjective comes in front of the noun your ad an "e" on the end.
Otherwise it's just Oud: "Het is odu." -->> "It is old."

My understanding is that both names you quote are the same area. "The Old Side". Over at HGF it's de nieuwezijds, "the new side" of the dam. Are you maybe mixing in "Oud-Zuid" the "old south"? I don't know why it's spelled that way with the hyphen and no "e".

Again I'm no expert. That's how I figure it based on my language studies so far.

Cheers,
chuck

Check out THIS map.
Off to the right of the hotel and south of the museumkwartier, it's spelled Oud-Zuid.
Then in THIS map that I got from these boards, it shows Oude Zijde as being below the centraal station.

edit: HGF?

That is correct, Old side is in the centre below Centraal and the Old south is down near the museum quarter. HGF is Homegrown Fantasy.

Yep what hasj said. Zuid and Zijde are two different words. "South" and "Side". I'm still unsure why Oud-Zuid and Oud-West are spelled with hyphens.
