'Dutch' is 'Nederlands' in Dutch

The English word is derived from "Diets". Dutch is based on Frankish, but that term has vanished into the mists of time, or so it seems. Nederland simply means low (nether) land, surviving in the term Low Countries (including Belgium, where another form of Low German is spoken, known as Flemish (Vlaams) and of course in Bob Dylan's Ballad "Sad-Eyed Lady of the Lowlands" - an ode to chanteuse Nico whom Dylan mistook for a Dutch lady (she was German). Double Dutch refers to unintelligible speech, as Dutch is peppered with guttural fricatives, sounding like a commercial for Fisherman's Friend, as an English pal once quipped.
