Solicitor/Barrister


Explanation:
Mijn man is hier in Engeland advocaat en hij wordt solicitor genoemd. Hij doet het meeste voorbereidende werk. Als het om een advokaat gaat die in het gerechtshof pleit, dan is het een barrister. Je kunt het ook gemakkelijk houden en het woord lawyer gebruiken, als je niet weet om wie van de twee het gaat.

eggnog


Explanation:
advokaat with a k is usually the stuff Americans know as eggnog, although it is not exactly the same recipe.
Advocaat with a c is usually a solicitor/barrister in England or a lawyer in the US.
You decide whether you want to drink/eat it, or to eat/drink him or her.
