Subject: RE: Lyr Add: The Twang Man
I only did a quick Google for any sort of an alternative explanation, Martin. I must say I don't recall ever having heard 'mort' referring to a woman of any description in any Dutch context but I'll grant you my reading of 17th century Dutch is relatively limited. My Dutch dictionary (a heavy duty, extensive enough one) doesn't mention it either.
