I don't live there, but I wanted to ask you if there are any plans to come to the world-famous "k├┬Âlner Karneval" ? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/partyhat.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/crackwhip.gif

I mean, it's not "careval in Rio", but it's still better than in Castrop-Rauxel http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

You live in K├┬Âln, Propeller? Or you just go there for Karneval?

I always hoped there'd be some sort of LAN-meeting in Germany, or some similar event, where hopefully some of us could meet, fly and talk and have a beer together. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

IÔ┬┤m in Mannheim now. First impression: itÔ┬┤s a city. I like dorfs.

Ok, the beer is good. Eichenbaum Pils. No problem finding a Turkish Imbiss. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

The language is much better than in Franken. The Franks speak some sort of dialect of something other than German. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I just had Frickedele(spelling Brems?) for lunch mit Br├┬Âtchen. In Franken itÔ┬┤s called "Fleischkuchen mit Br├┬Âtle oder Sammeln".

To be honest I miss the villages. The cities are not so nice in Germany, save Bamberg. A half liter beer in Staffelstein is only 1.8 euro. In Mannheim it's almost 3 or more. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

Haha, the german dialects...I'd wirte it Frikadelle - though I'm not sure on my own http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

About the Br├┬Âtchen (a roll, bread = Brot, "little" bread = Br├┬Âtchen - a rather lovingly abbreviation) issue:

It's called "Br├┬Âtchen" in proper german, but the upper and lower Bavarians, just like the guys from Schwaben and Franken will call it "Semmel", while the guys from Berlin and the surrounding area call it "Schrippe".
A Frikadelle would be a "Fleischpflanzerl" in Bavaria - might be kinda hard to spell for you, right ? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif


Next time you come by that turkish "imbiss, ask for a "D├┬Âner mit alles" (=> turkish German http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif) - that's quite delicious. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif
But be prepared for a hot experience, when they add the hot sauce.


BTW: dit you recognize that "abbreviation" is, in fact, a pretty long word ? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

You have Unter, Mittel, und OberFranken. The Unters call it "Br├┬Âtle" while the Obers call it "Br├┬Âtl├┬Ą". Not sure what the Mittels say.

I was in Kiel with a Frank. He asked for Fleischkuchen mit Br├┬Âtle and the waiter simply said "Huh?". http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Luckily I knew the difference and corrected the Frank. But even after they were arguing about which was the correct word. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

A few other funny words that the Franks use are "fai" and "nimmer". "Nimmer" is Frankisch for "nichts mehr" (Wir hab nimmer beir. Schei├če, fai schlecht, ne?) They also combine many words; "kein Ë×ngst"
becomes "kangst" http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Last Tuesday my partner (Gunnar) visited me in Bad Staffelstein. Gunner is a Mannheimer and frequently travels around Germany for business. I introduced him to a couple of friends. After they left he told me that when they speak to each other it was two languages he couldnÔ┬┤t understand. I explained to him that one was from Michelau and the other from Altenburghof, two villages only 7km apart.

The funny part is that I can understand both of them even though I started learning German last year. But still, Hoch Deutsch is crystal clear when compared to the Franken dialects.

In Wattendorf, no one outside the village understands the old people.

In Poppendorf, no language necessary. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

BTW, Poppendorf is real and the next village is B├╝sendorf. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

For the non-German speakers, Poppen is a slang word for "banginÔ┬┤"(sex related) and "b├╝sen" is breasts. I love the names of German villages. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I see, you've learned all those important words first http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

The term "fei/fai" ist quite common for the whole southern part of Germany, just like the combination you mentioned "k'Angst ned hoam" (keine Angst haben - in Bavarian-German).


Are there also widespread differences in spoken language in North America ? Of course the differences won't be that appearant since dialects take a lot of time to devellop, but I've heard there are also some differences between southern-state language and northern-state language in the US.

Pirschjaeger

Bigtime. The US has many accents and dialects. The southerners can understand those in the north but the northerners have a little trouble with some of the south. ItÔ┬┤s quite comparable to Germany and Hoch Deutsch.

You've probably heard the Bavarians say "net" for "nicht". This confused the hell out of me at first. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Saxonian sounds quite funny, but since both of my partents are from Saxonia, I have some kind of background-immunity against it (though both of them speak Hochdeutsch).

IMHO Saxonian mostly only differs from Hochdeutsch by it's pronouciation, while K├┬Âlsch or Bavarian have their own (pretty strane) grammar.

In my job, I work with people from just about every background and I can tell you, the biggest gap you'll find is the language of urban youth, and that trancends any region, race, or background with the amount of slang and trash it bombards you with. There's a much bigger difference between England and the US or Austrailia than within the US.
