For example, the diphthong in Swiss-German "guet" versus the monophthong in High-German "gut".Speaking Swiss-German is common for all people living in the Swiss-German part of Switzerland, independent of age or education.With the ongoing globalization and immigration, mixing Swiss-German dialects with English (quite often even with pseudo English) or speaking so called "Jugo-Deutsch" (German pronounced as immigrants coming from the former Yugoslavia region tend to pronounce it) has also become trendy for youngsters.Note that most of the following Swiss-German phrases and words are written as they would be pronounced by people living in the area around Bern, Basel, Zürich.For example, "Fine, thank you" is "Guet, merci"; with guet being the German word for good/fine, while merci is from the French "thank you".In addition, there are many pronunciation differences which separate Swiss-German from either language.Remarkably, the native dialects spoken in the many Swiss-German cantons are clearly distinguishable by locals (i.e.they can tell apart from the dialect in which canton somebody grew up).
