FOWC with Fandango: Gibberish

We have television in Switzerland in French, German and Italian according to where you live. I live in the Swiss German speaking part of the country, although our German is often our dialect. Today we are speaking gibberish, although I do understand this gibberish, I even speak it daily.

One of our weather speakers comes from our town, and have seen her a few times shoppimg in the local store. I managed to find one of our weather reports being spoken by this lady in YouTube from June 2016, so here it is: a sample of my daily language.

  1. I understood everything 😉
    It’s funny the thing with the dialects – my French spoken Suisse Romand (from Lausanne where they speak French but NOT the French of France…. 😉 – hardly understands anything when we speak amongst ourselves in the Zurich dialect. His collegues at work are ‘trained’ to speak ‘good high German’ with him and he brings out new German words by the truckload because he’s just taking any French or English word and does a ‘verdeutschen’….

    • I spent the first two years of my Swiss life in Zürich, Kreis 3, before moving off to Solothurn where I have now been for more than 50 years, but a little Züritütsch remains, although not very much.
