Plautdietsch word of the day: Kuckhaulse

Plautdietsch Word of the Day


Pronounced: kuk-hauls

What it sounds like: A delivery trucking company

What it really means: to gag or nearly throw up

Example: Hein went to bed as he was feeling the effects of the baked beans he’d eaten for supper.  Although regrettable, he was forced to let the noxious gases escape him. Hein’s mumpjchi woke up from the long-drawn-out noises and began to kuckhaulse after which she replied, “oba du schwien!”

Have some fun with that special someone and say, "I love through sickness and in health...and through the effects of baked beans".
