      If I literally translate your sentence in English, it would be “has and gives self”

      “Gueti Reis und gueti Besserig”, assuming you are saying this to a sick person.

    This website appears to be a complete scam! Besides having awful, sloppy, mis-advertised content, I have been subjected to recurring charges, despite the site being advertised as a one-time payment. I have requested to have my account canceled but have received no reply. I am now exploring options for legal action.

    This list has only about 800 words, not 20’000 as stated at the top. Yeah, this site is a scam

    pay attention to the fine print at the bottom which says “The dictionary is a derived work from ahumorousguidetoswitzerland.blogspot.ch”

    So, it is a total lie that the creators of this scam website “carefully curated the 20’000 most common Swiss German words for you”
