Re: Landzaat = inhabitant
In Response To: Re: Landzaat = inhabitant ()

From the etymology, I would assume it means just the native sitting in/on the national land.

Means: no foreign mercenaries were accepted for this new corps,

Land-wehr literally means land defense.

Land-s-er comes from, I believe Land + the euphonic sound "s" + the suffix "er" which here means a man: so the original meaning was; (fellow) countryman, later: a German soldier.

"Landser" appears in the German language as late as the 20th century, I am very sure it was not in use during the Napoleoinc wars.
