For those of you who know some German ( or whatever language that is),

can you tell us what it says.

 

I think its a little bit more than 'Floyds barber shop'.

Contestant: " Pat, I'd like to buy a vowel - E "

Pat: "There are 16 E's" :blink:

5 minutes later after Vanna turns the E's - :angry:

Contestant spins again. 'Pat, the letter "S" '

Pat: "There are 24 S's" :o

Spelled with a double S. 

While Germans use this, it is not universal nor do all German speakers use it. For instance, German speaking Swiss have never used it, nor Lichentensteiners.

Is there an official version of Swiss or Lichtenstein’s German?  There probably should be, since German scholars have been redefining the spellings of words since 1996.

 

i know Belgian and Swiss French speakers have their own words such as septant, octant, nonant, instead of soizant-diz, etc.

Swiss -German is only spoken, with no official recognition for it as a written language. Swiss-Germans will speak and write in official capacity in Hochdeutstsch. There has been some who wish to preserve the uniqueness of Swiss-German dialects and have written it down and preserved it. Every German I know says that Swiss-German is unintelligible to them.

26 Swiss newspapers are printed in German. Are they also Hochdeutsch?

Everyone I know of are printed in Hochdeutsch. There may be some small run or local paper that’s printed in the local dialect. I can ask my Swiss wife if you want.
