A new game.

I post words in the franconian language (no franconian village language) and you could try it to translate the words to German and English.


So let us start now:

a Gaggala
a Bigsn
a Grischberla
World Champions
1954 Germany - Hungary 3:2
1974 Germany - Netherlands 2:1
1990 Germany - Argentina 1:0
2014 Germany - Argentina 1:0

Ich weiss jetzt nicht ob ich total daneben liege.
Ich denke das Wort "Bigsn" bedeutet eine Büchse?
Die andern weiss ich leider nicht. Sehr witziged Deutsch habt ihr da!:D

I don't know now whether I'm totally wrong here.
I think the word "Bigsn" means a rifle?
Unfortunately I don't know the others words. You've got there a very funny German!:D
