        On foreign languages, it's very like me to be wrong. I lived in Amsterdam for several years and I could probably count on two hands the number of Dutch words I know. Coincidentally, most of them involve Old Greg's wife too.

          Nope. For a name pronounced in the English fashion, there is no elide. "... de 'Old Greg'..." you see.

            The Dutch speak better English than most English people (and all Scots & Welsh). Coincidentally, OG's wife tried working in Amsterdam for a while, but someone kept drawing the curtains...
