A curious history of New York in 101 objects, from the artichoke to the water tank to the first dictionary:
Language difficulties divided the population (about half of it Dutch at the time) and got in the way of the British laissez-faire approach to governing. Innovations like the jury system were particularly problematic. The problem was solved by an English–Low Dutch dictionary published by a New Jersey schoolmaster.

Other words such as “coleslaw,” “waffle,” “doughnut,” “stoop,” and “Yankee” endured.
