EtymologyEdit

From Middle Dutch âvont, from Old Dutch āvont, from Proto-Germanic *ēbanþs.

  • IPA(key): /ˈaː.vɔnt/
  • (file)
  • Hyphenation: avond

NounEdit

avond m (plural avonden, diminutive avondje n)

Usage notesEdit

Just like German Abend, Dutch avond includes the hours until midnight. So while one says in English: We're having a beer tonight!, one would say in Dutch: We drinken vanavond een biertje!
