Yep.  I forgot that I actually had very near relatives living
very near to the Harz-colony of "erzgeb" for a very long time,
and I never heard that this is in any way remarkable.  I can't
tell if I talked to a guy on the streets of St. Andreasberg -
or if I did they had no reason to talk back in their "erzbgeb"
language, assuming this could be hard for me to understand.
