The 1000 most common Dutch words [Complete List]

We produced this list of the thousand most common Dutch words by analyzing an extensive collection of Dutch-language texts including news articles and other articles from the internet.

We used a method called lemmatization to convert the vocabulary words to their canonical (dictionary) form. Lemmatization is a technique that involves grouping the inflected forms of a word so they can treated as a single item.

This list is intended for language learners who want to focus on mastering the most frequently used words in Dutch.

Resources for learning Dutch include courses from Babbel and Pimsleur, as well as tutors from Italki.

Filter by word type

Here is the list of the 1000 most common Dutch words:

  1. de
    [article]
    (the)

    The Dutch language has two grammatical genders: common and neuter. The definite article “de” is for nouns that have the common gender, while “het” is used for nouns that have the neuter grammatical gender.

  2. het
    [article]
    (the)
  3. zijn
    [verb]
    (to be)

    "Zijn" is an irregular verb, meaning it does not follow the regular conjugation patterns of most Dutch verbs. It also has many uses, including that of an auxiliary verb, to form compound tenses, such as in the phrase "Ik ben gekomen" (I have come).

  4. van
    [preposition]
    (from)

    Another reason why this is such a common Dutch word is that it often appears in Dutch names, for example “van Gogh”.

  5. een
    [article]
    (a)

    This is the indefinite article in Dutch. It stays the same regardless of the grammatical gender of the corresponding noun.

  6. en
    [conjunction]
    (and)

    In Dutch, as in most languages, the most common words are generally short. This linguistic phenomenon is called the “brevity law” or “Zipf's law of abbreviation”.

  7. in
    [preposition]
    (in)
  8. op
    [preposition]
    (on)
  9. te
    [preposition]
  10. met
    [preposition]
    (with)
  11. voor
    [preposition]
    (in front of)

    Double vowels serve an important function in Dutch spelling, as they indicate long vowels. 22% of the Dutch words in this list contain a double vowel.

  12. worden
    [verb]
    (to become)

    The verb “worden” is also used to form the passive voice in Dutch sentences, further increasing its usage.

  13. dat
    [conjunction]
    (that)
  14. hebben
    [verb]
    (to have)
  15. kunnen
    [verb]
    (to be able to)
