Weird thing is, in dutch it is Al het goede komt in blikjes but in Noord-Brabants dialect (still dutch) Al 't goed komme in daze/doze/dooskes. I actually understand bits of danish! I wonder how that has evolved. It both has roots in german (old kind, not the misnamed word for Deutch language which has it roots there to).
Hell no, more a separate path of evolution of the Germane language, like Danish and German although Danish has strong Nordic influences and vice versa. The Saksic and Friese tribes are the ancestors of the English language while the Bataves(all three groups were Germane) had more influence in Belgium, Rotterdam and Limburg of which many civilians fled to Amsterdam during WW II so those dialects collided into what is now general polite Dutch. English has also lot of French in it since that is a Latin originated language like Spanish an Italian and the Romans stayed in lower England. And yet it is a simple language unlike the others which are among the hardest of the world (French excluded). Ever since the Romans conquered half England an Batavia, the market betweem them has been growing to the largest one in the world until China got involved. So the languages influenced each other greatly. And now I wonder why the Noord-Brabant dialect has greater resemblance to Danish than any other Dutch dialect while they rarely invaded it and when they did it was on the shore and thousands of years ago.
