It’s that time again,
Your turn to learn a few more words in Pennsylvania Deutsch.
Today I have the name for most people's favorite vegetable or one of them. Also I thought it would be fun do give you a few descriptive words to learn as well.
Gale reeva - Carrots
Gale - Rree-vah
Grik som gale reeva funn der garten.
Get some carrots from the garden.
Interestingly enough like many words today, colors are quite similar in Pennsylvania Deutsch and English. They are usually said with a heavy German accent.
Orange, would be pronounced Oran-cha.
Red - Rrot
Blue - Bloeh
Green - Greeh
Purple - Purple
Brown - Brah
The exceptions are as following
Yellow - Galeh
Black - Shwatts
White - Vahs
Keep on learning, you will love being able to share a few words with the locals when your traveling.
Have a great day
