Decoding Swiss German

Decoding Swiss German

Switzerland is home to a large variety of regional dialects, all of which have their own idiosyncrasies of pronunciation and vocabulary. The spoken dialect also tends to omit certain letters and word endings, while merging the remaining speech elements together, making it difficult to detect individual words.

With the help of typical words, phrases and stories, this booklet teaches you to recognize the systematic differences and understand the transformation rules between Swiss German and German, allowing you to make sense of the language.
