Tussen twee haakjes

Tussen twee haakjes = by the way

If you are making a remark that is a little bit off-topic in the current conversation, you use this expression:

Tussen twee haakjes

[lit: between two parentheses] By the way

Ze heeft  hem tussen twee haakjes nog niet teruggebeld

By the way, she hasn’t returned his call yet

(She hasn’t returned his call, yet)

Tussen twee haakjes, het linkerhaakje heet ‘Haakje openen’ en het rechterhaakje noemen we ‘haakje sluiten’.

By the way, the left one is called: “haakje openen”. The right one is called: “haakje sluiten”.
