German dialects - Mecklenburgisch


In this third part of my German dialect series we look at one of the Eastern states in Germany. You may have thought that low German was only spoken in the northwest of Germany, but Niederdeutsch is spoken across the North from the West to to East, with lots of variations in between.

So today we look at Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is the 6th largest state by area and has some beautiful places to go to for holidays. Just have a  read and look on Wikipedia!

I found two videos on YouTube about the Mecklenburg dialect which, sadly, have been taken down. But  Deutsche Welle has the transcript for both videos if you’d like to read what they said.

Did you understand everything? Anything?

“Dat duurt aal’n büschen länger, ne.”

It takes time, doesn’t it?


As a reminder, here are part 1 and 2 again:

German dialects – Hamburgerisch and Ostfriesisch

German dialects – das Grafschafter Platt
