How do you count to ten in Pennsylvania Dutch? In the video below by Virgil Schrock you can hear a variety of speakers doing just that, in different accents.

The video also includes a little bit of 11-20. There is a cute segue about 2/3 through, with a young Amish boy doing his own counting, but not in PA Dutch.

Listen to the end, where you’ll hear the accents on¬†two numbers compared across all the speakers.


I learned from a reader last week that Virgil recently passed away. Virgil would occasionally comment on this website, and we have featured some of his PA Dutch videos here before. Rest in peace.
