- In Scots, ane mey refer tae Brabant bi the adjectives Brabantine or Brabantian, but anly the latter term is (nearly) as general as French "Brabançon", which can an aa be a substantive for e.g. the dialect, a man, or a horse or its breed frae Brabant. In French, "Brabançonne" is the feminine gender o adjective "Brabançon" an matches the precedin definite airticle "la", thus micht fit an implee'd e.g. "chanson", ('sang') (cf. the offeecial name o the French hymn: "la Marseillaise", "(sang) haein tae dae with the ceety o Marseille"). But neither the female definite airticle in German "die Brabançonne" nor the male "den Brabançonne" in Brabantian aka Brabantine dialects of Dutch can fit 'sang', which is "Lied" in German an "lied" in Dutch, baith o neutre genus. In the day's staundart Dutch, "de Brabançonne" disna betray whether the gender is male or female, but canna be uised for a neuter substantive either, an referrin tae "de Brabançonne" bi "hij" confirms the male interpretation o Dutch dialects. For the anthem name in Scots, as in Dutch, German, an o coorse French, Brabançonne can be conseedert a proper noon.
