    I’m sorry to hear he passed away. I’ve watched a number of his videos over the last couple years to see how much of the PA Dutch I could understand.

    It would have been interesting to have them continue counting further. For instance, in Pennsylvania Dutch, the count is not twenty-one, twenty-two, twenty-three, etc, but ‘one and twenty, two and twenty, three and twenty, etc.

    Comparison of pronouncing Pennsylvania Dutch number 9

    I thought this was the same video I had seen before, but I didn’t know Virgil Shrock combined parts of several different videos so we can hear how people use different pronunciations for the numbers 9 and 14.

    For the English words nine, three, time, my, your, and his, in certain areas of the country, folks will pronounce with a long I, the Pennsylvania Dutch words nein, drei, Zeit, mei, dei, and sei, while others will use a short A. If you listen how they say “drei,” you can predict how they will pronounce “nein!”
