This past week, Dutch people might have seen my brother and I participate in a game show on national TV. We spent waaaay too much effort preparing for it - let me share some of the things we did. #Lingo
Using a subtitles-based corpus of Dutch words, I wrote a script that gave me three words that covered most commonly occurring letters for every letter of the alphabet. We memorised those and used them as our first guesses, and have two left to guess the right word.
If you're in the Netherlands, you can view the episodes online, starting with the first one here: https://sbs6.nl/programmas/lingo/videos/Vk9EpXSlwas/lingo/
