Dialect, Maastricht: 11 reviews and 10 photos


Maastricht has it's own dialect. In fact: every town in the Province of Limberg has. It surely will make an interesting impression if you can speak some words!! Here are some of the most used expressions. (Use the English orthography and it's sounds as tool to excercise the pronounciation)

'doeg miech mčr e pilske jong' (pronounce as: doog meek mair uh pill-skuh young) It means: one beer, please. 'boe lig de maosbrök urges?' (pronounce as: boo lick the mos-bruc urgens?) It means 'where can I find the old bridge?'
'Kin iech diech és eve puune?' (pronounces as: kin eag deag us ave poone?' It means: What time is it?

In case that you take a off the baeten path trip to other towns in this reagio and end up in sittard f.e. there are also some expressions that are very usefull to know in the sittardian dialect

"e putje beier" - pronounce as: uh pud-ju beyer" (a glass of beer)
"ich höb ne kwakkert in de tröt!" pronounce as: ich hub ne quackard inde tr-ut" (if got a frog in my trouth)
