A Quick Guide to Swiss German
A Quick Guide to the Swiss German Language is a lovely page to look at if you are interested in some differences between German and Swiss German or would like some tongue twisters with which to pass your evening.
Today, other than cleaning toilets, mopping floors, changing sheets, doing laundry, meal-planning, grocery shopping, training the children to be industrious, helpful and hard-working (by giving them the instant reinforcement of being paid for their cheerful labor), and visiting our town library for the first time, I had a German interaction with the cashier (asking her for three sizes of the special trash bags they keep behind the registers, measured in litre capacity), and listened about four times to an answering machine message in Swiss-German without being able to decipher what the hours of the orthodontist are. I'll have to try them again tomorrow morning and hope they're open then (and speak English or French).
Being slightly under the weather this evening, that will have to suffice for my contribution to the blogosphere for today. The deepest of grace and peace to you. It flows freely to those who ask the Source Guy.
