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. Both talk about the dialect and how slow they speak in a conversation – not that you would find it slow listening to it ☺

Deutsche Welle has the transcript for both videos if you’d like to read what they say while listening.

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
