In Dutch they are called "bakkebaarden" (singular: "bakkebaard"). No "burn" there.

I mean, it makes sense. English is a Germanic language, it just branched a little further away from Old German than Dutch did. When that happened, the bake-beards got overdone, and burned.

in german, at least, it's called "Backenbart" (or "Koteletten", whcih is similar to "Kotelett" (meat chop)). "Backen" means "bake", but also "cheek". so there.

The Koteletten one is interesting - we might talk about "muttonchops" in English, but those are marginally different to sideburns (they extend a ways along the jawline).
I don't know how I forgot that Backen was cheeks, focusing on Dutch it must have slipped my attention. That's a much more probable link, I think, cheek-beard. (Although I was mostly kidding about the baked beards thing). For completeness, what's the Dutch word for cheek, I wonder? Google Translate says..."wang", which puts a little hole in that idea, although it could be a borrowing that was translated, or it could have roots that go further back than Dutch.

Nope, not even my half German home dialect uses "bakke" for cheek. Perhaps in Frisian but I am no expert there and a quick google indicated it is also "wang".

Yes, I have two wangs on my face.
Ignoring for a moment that the multiple of "wang" is "wangen" and not "wangs". Most words with a native Dutch root have -en (or some form of it) as a multiple. Words copied from English often use -s.

Today I learned that the Nazis adopted a theory of architecture called Ruin Value (which some claimed to invent, although it existed in Europe before the Nazis).


The idea behind Ruin Value was to explicitly design buildings so that, when they eventually became ruins (like those of ancient Greece and Rome) they would look especially aesthetically pleasing and cool.

Hi, Sneeze;
It is a fairly well accepted idea in La-Te-Da Architecture Circles.

Darned.
If I were better with Names....

True Story.
Spoiler:
I took a class on Architecture for non-architects.
We did not have to do much Math, at all.

One, very memorable, day we listened to a Famous and Respected Architect who was Dead at the Time.
That part was a little surreal.

That man was so good, understood his subject so well and had such passion,
an old fashioned Black and White Movie had been made of one of his favorite lectures.

We were expected to watch and understand it.
As he named a Ruin, a photo of that ruin was shown.
((ech) It's been a long time.)

What he said was Timeless.
He gave the standard pep talk.
You are building structures that.... and he listed what we all know.

Then he hit the audience with,
"You are building Ruins."

Then he got all excited and said something like,
"Build Beautiful Ruins!"

I think, I understood that part.
Then he went on to talk about what makes a ruin Beautiful.

I know, I agreed with him.
I did not understand him.

He was using language for Professional Architects.
If I remember his name, I'll post it.

The 'Ugly Ruins' were Ugly.
The 'Beautiful Ruins' were Beautiful.

The idea may have been in the heads and papers of Natzi.
The idea was not originally born in the Head of a Natzi.

At least I hope it was not.
It does not seem like the Natzi way of thinking.

Besides; We Know beautiful ruins were being done,
before Natzi were a Sparkle in Satan's Eye.
I learned today;
My spell check will not recognize the word Natzi.
Maybe, the bots are trying to erase the memory of Natzi.

In Afrikaans, "wang" is cheeck (prunounced "vung"); but "bakkies" can informally refer to your face. I don't know its etymology, but it's an odd word whose structure seems a bit out of place; I would bet it's one of those handed down from Dutch or further back (as rat4000 suggests) without any of its root or related words surviving (kind of like gormless or disgruntled).

In fact, this entry from the authorative Afrikaans dictionary suggests that a similar word means face in Dutch too, or at least did at some point. Link translated by me off the top of my head:
bakkies s.nw. (geselstaal) Gesig. Uit Nederlands bakkes (1617) “gesig”, mntl. ‘n afleiding met -s van bakke “wang”.

bakkies, noun (informal speech) Face. From Dutch bakkes (1617) "face", possibly a derivation with -s from bakke "cheek"


(apologies for the double post, I forgot I could edit posts here)


Edit: and, here's the Dutch word "bakkes": http://www.etymologiebank.nl/trefwoord/bakkes

Hmm, I have only seen it used in a dialect (Noord Brabands): "Houd je bakkes" (translation: "shut up")
Literally
"Houd": keep
"je": your
"bakkes": mouth

"dicht": "Shut" was once there probably but, well, people are lazy. I have often heard it and used it shortened to "BAKKES!". I can't remember having seen "bakkes" in any other sentence, and certainly not in ABN (official Dutch), despite it being in our dictionary. Due to the fact that it isn't used for anything else "BAKKES!" was quite clear and short enough to be uttered in a commanding shout.

Today I learned that "bakkes" is not just a dialect word!

From convos with Dutch friends, we seem to have a lot of words that form part of our standard vernacular that are considered terribly old-fashioned and/or formal in Dutch now. I guess that's what happens when two branches of a language diverge.

I have been told calling a hair elastic a "haarrekkie" is one example (citation needed).
