Thanks, sarra! That's what I was looking for. Uselessness, it sounds more or less like "JOL-uk" on sarra's file. See what you think.

Lazy OED!It's the middle word in this mp3 file: tjirpen, tjalk, tjokvol.
Good question. I'm no Dutch master (har har), so I looked it up in the OED. This is what it says under "pronunciation":(tjalk)So...anyone familiar with the language?
Pronounced like chalk, I wonder?
Tjalk vessels were designed for use along the Dutch/French canals. Their low air draft and good maneuverability made them popular cruising vessels.
