Hi scotcat. I was born in South West Scotland, but axs the name implies, live elsewhere. Welcome, and watch out for the weirdos*.

(* note: weirdos may include your interlocutor)

Re: stalkin' my peeps - Welcome New Members thread!

Welcome to craziness
*glances at location* oooh, a beautiful region! Full of Moorhen, Feegles and Immortals ;-) LOL, sorry - couldn't resist to bring up the stereotypes. Being Eastern Bavarian I find myself on the receiving end of prejudices/stereotypes all the time. Everyone always thinks we wear leather pants, yodel all day and climb mountains for fun (that's just the Upper Bavarians. There are 6 other Bavarian peoples besides them. And as far as the climbing is concerned, a Bavarian proverb states that one should preferably see mountains from the bottom, churches from the outside and pubs from within).

Re: stalkin' my peeps - Welcome New Members thread!

"Berge von unten, Kirchen von außen und Wirtshäuser von innen"
(or in my local dialect: Berg vo unt, Kiacha vo außt, Wiatsheisa vo inna)

Or did you refer to the 7 Bavarian peoples?
Those are Franconians (Franken), who divide themselves up into Upper- Lower- and Middle Franconians (Ober-, Unter- und Mittelfranken), Swabians (Schwaben, puuuurely coincidentially a slang word for cockroaches) and Old Bavarians (Altbayern) which consist of Upper and Lower Bavarians (Ober- und Niederbayern) plus Upper Palatinates (Oberpfälzer).
I'm an Upper Palatinate by birth and have been living in Lower Bavaria for 20 years now: they need the development aid

I started learning German about 20 years ago. It's the most basic thing I could think of that fitted this thread!

Re: stalkin' my peeps - Welcome New Members thread!

Way below the fold -in small print- the papers ran a strange little story the other day: us Danes are the second-best non-native English speakers in the world -apparently... Now, what I want to know is how well do we write English?
