Yes, de-CH is the language of the NZZ (a famous CH-newspaper),
and in some cases it degenerates into "I hate ß after
one decade too much with a US-keyboard / card puncher layout".
For the differences between "gsw" and "Alemannisch" I'm lost.
I'm only positive that "de as used near the Sarre (Saar)" is
not "Schwyzerdütsch", and "Mannemeresch" (mentioned on the
LTRU list some days ago) is completely different. I lived
for some time in Saarbrücken and Mannheim.
Whatever they use in Strasbourg (France, Alsace), AFAIK it's
not "Schyzerdütsch" but maybe it's "Alemannisch". Bye, Frank
