nobyeni commented on the word bell
In Dutch, bellen is to phone someone.
In German, bellen is to bark (the sound dogs make).
One of the many mistakes many Dutch people make when trying to speak German: Ich belle dir! I bark you!

Dutch word. verb.
To destroy something purpusefully, from the inside. But not very seriously harmful, just annoying.
