4 Replies to “What Beleg Means”

  1. It’s really not that difficult at all…. Leggen in Dutch means to put/lay (something). Beleggen means (to put something upon something else beneath it). So “beleg” is all about the something that is put upon/over something else: in Def. 1-Force, in Def. 2 Cheese, ham, marmelade, etc.

  2. “Beleg” is actually a siege when used as a noun. I think the use for martial law is archaic and obscure, at least in Belgium.
