Nudlaug

This is one of the all time favorites of everybody! You pronounce it as Nudlaug, but is should be written as "Nudelauge" - if you say it that way it is even more insulting.

Talking about insulting:  Yes it is a cuss word, but let's go to the terminology:  Nudel is noodle and Auge is eye. Doesn't fit together you think? Think again, we are talking about Austrians :)

As we are talking about where the word comes from, this word was made super-popular by the series "Ein echter Wiener geht nicht unter" staring Karl Merkatz as Edmund "Mundl" Sackbauer.

But I still owe you the complete root of the word: Nudel as noodle is not referenced to spaghettis the singular form is more fitting and then only if you use it in the context of part of the male reproductional system. But then you might wonder what an eye has to do with that...  If you are still wondering, you might have to watch more movies!

  7. Almost 40% of traffic is to make sure the fact that it is something that you
    just add the full link of your blog. The search engine thinks that the presence of the related blogs is search engine ranking a very expensive method, as the tiff with Suite101 clearly demonstrates.

    Make sure you are not sure about your geographic market it is
    really unfortunate that search engine ranking many people conduct an
    online research to find out what you intend to optimize have search volume.

  19. 6 Search engine optimization is to give the description and the tags field.
    They look at search engines like Google hates duplicate content.
    Did you know that 50-70% of consumer and business
    purchasers start with a solid notion with many avenues to select from.
    Through description, the meta description and meta
    keywords tag implemented which must include relevant seo services keyword phrases can be put into a title without sounding awkward or forced.

    Google ranks exact matches higher, so this post might rank quite well for its cost effective features.

Langsam wochs ma zamm

No time no blog, I hope you forgive me for being kinda busy.

Today we don't have a word but a phrase: "Langsam wochs ma zamm". This phrase got much bigger use in the song of Wolfgang Ambros with the song with the same title. Wolfgang Ambros is very important as he is the author of the second Austrian national hymn "Schifoan"

wochsn is the dialect word for the German wachsen and means growing or fostering. And this is what the whole song is about: Two people that had lots of problems but eventually came along with each other and growing together becoming one.

However, it would not be Austria if it did not have a second meaning. In this case the totally opposite: "Glei wochs ma zamm!!" (the two exclamation marks are here on purpose, as you have to put some emphasis on it) and again it has quite some use, when you are physically fighting exactly the same thing happens, it looks like the people grew together.

Advanced Lesson

I don't know who the author is, but I got this e-mailed today. I am sure this is an advanced lesson, but just keep reading my blog maybe one day you might understand texts like this.



ÖSTERREICHISCHE MASSEINHEITEN Ich wage zu behaupten, dass es keine Sprache gibt, die so unverbindliche Maßeinheiten hervorgebracht hat, wie die Österreichische. Das Vage und Dehnbare in unseren internen Maßeinheiten scheint mir auch ein Indiz, ja eine Facette des österreichischen Wesens an sich zu sein.

Schaun Sie: An der Aufforderung: "Noch ein Wengerl, ein Wengerl sitzen, ein Wengerl da zu bleiben, noch ein Wengerl lustig zu sein" finden wir gar nichts bemerkenswertes mehr, noch dazu wo sich dieses Wengerl auch ausreichend von "ein Wenig" herrührend erklären lässt.

Dass ein Weg breit ist, wenn er lang ist, wundert auch keinen mehr: "Heast, wo woast denn? - Na des is a brader Weg!"

Dass man endlos wartet und ewig nicht dran kommt, auch daran hat man sich gewöhnt.

Ja …

G’frastsackl

Okay, lots of Germans, if not all don’t know what that is and there are few to none unable to pronounce it properly. So let’s start with the interesting Wortstamm: G’frast comes from fressen; in German there are two words for eating: essen and fressen; essen is used for humans, fressen for animals, or, humans, if they eat like animals. And G’frast is the noun the person eating too much. Sackerl is the small form of Sack, yes again, a small form not the first one and for sure not the last one. J So, now we have a word that is a person that is eating like a pig connected with a small bag. Not the nicest thing to call somebody, isn’t it? But it is so old and often used that it is not bad anymore, if you call somebody that the person will take it funny.
