Op [1] staat dat cul-de-sac wel uit het Frans komt. Wie heeft er gelijk? Mavas 15 feb 2009 22:14 (CET)

Despite seeming to be a borrowed French phrase, the expression cul-de-sac originated in England during the period when French was spoken by the English aristocracy. "Cul-de-sac" literally means "bottom of a bag" in French. J. R. R. Tolkien used the name Bag End as a literal translation of "cul-de-sac," to poke fun at the British use of French terms.
