A new dictionary reveals that there is not just one Tyrolean dialect. 2The western province is, as Hans Moser’s reference book shows, full of different dialects – almost each valley seems to have its own, significant words. In his new dictionary, Moser and his cooperation partner Robert Sedlaczek not only list terms that are still used by residents of the mountainous region. They also consider words and phrases that are extinguished or rarely used nowadays. This is not the first publication about dialects and their developments by Moser, a former FH Kufstein college headmaster. In “Das Radio Tirol Wörterbuch der Tiroler Mundarten”, fans of the popular winter sports and hiking area find information about thousands of words on more than 300 pages – from “Achatzerei” to “Zwetschgenmandl”.
