So, in short, the adjective remains unmodified for neuter words. I
should have known that and I think I did learn it a while back, but

Zo'n fout was dom. Vorige maand was ik in Belgiƫ bij het
verjaardagsfeest van een vriend die nabij Brussel woont. Er waren er
Vlamingen en Nederlanders (die wat verschillende uitspraak hebben!) en
