Query about a phrase
Can someone please help me understand the term 'is gei'. A german friend of mine was a little irritated recently and said this. Ive tried searching, to no avail. Thanks in advance.
I am a German and I have never heard or read that before.where does your friend live? may be it is a dialect.
Thanks for the reply. I just know South Germany. Dont really know much about this friend to be honest, we just talk often on an online forum. Usually communicate with Google Translate.
south germany explains it :-)I think it is a dialect. Even for a German from the north it is sometimes hard to understand what they are saying :-D
So the "fishheads" don't have dialects? Amazing news ;-)
I guess it should be something along the lines of "is(t) geil" - "it's great", but in a somewhat sarcastic way. Did your friend say it or write it?
Halloooo ;-) uns kann man aber immer verstehen. Ich habe eben tatsächlich einen Deutsch/Bayerisch Übersetzer gefunden hehe
Hello there! He wrote it. You are correct, it may have been sarcasm; there was a heated discussion on the forum. But not 'geil', just 'gei'.
must be bavarian. i am from southern germany (Baden-Württenberg) and i have never heard this.
