What is Dutch?

Dutch is many things, including a nationality,. a brand of cigarillo, and a cultural group in Pennsylvania. Roughly speaking, the Dutch people are residents of Holland, also known as the Netherlands. The Pennsylvania Dutch are the descendants of German immigrants–so-called because of confusion as to the meaning and pronunciation of ‘Deutsch’ (meaning ‘German’). To ‘go Dutch’ means to split evenly. For example, on their date, feminist Daphne said to James, ‘Let’s go Dutch,’ and split the dinner bill with him.
