On her blog “Ik hou van taal” Flemish writer Ann De Craemer declared her love for the word “goesting” in 2014, in an article fittingly called: “Ik heb goesting in Goesting”. And she is not the only one.
The fact that the word “goesting” appeals to many Flemish people has not gone unnoticed by marketing experts, authors, non-profit organisations and political parties. Over the last ten years, the word keeps popping up in book titles, commercials, magazines, political campaigns, restaurant names, articles and many other places. Even in job advertisements, they are looking for people with "goesting"! You can find some illustrations below!
