Re: Klinkenberg-spelled with K instead of G

Hello Marco,
can you tell me what "Klink..., Klinke..." means in Dutch language or old
Dutch language. Is it similar to the english "to clink"?
In german "Klinke" is a door-handle. I've read that this german word
has the same origin like german "klingen". It comes from the metallic sound
of door-handles in the last time.
regards
Uwe
