* Bureau and auto are words from French.
Both Dutch gordijn click to
  hear and English 'curtain' come from the Late Latin word cortino.
The common meaning of sloop click
to hear 2 is 'pillowcase,' but it's also 'wrecking,' and that place where some people go to buy parts of wrecked cars.
Dutch (het) bureau click to
  hear means both 'desk' and 'office.' (Het) politiebureau click to
  hear - 'the police station.' The 'eau' is French.
kamerplant click to
  hear ('house plant')
