Plautdietsch word of the day: fe'schlukt

Plautdietsch word of the day: fe'schlukt

Pronounced: fush-lukt

What it sounds like: a strange kind of Irish luck

What it really means: to have something go down wrong when swallowing

Example: Hein always liked to make his mumtje laugh at the most unexpected times. Leina was just having a sip of yerba when she glanced over at Hein who was balancing a tweibach on his head. Leina was swallowing yerba as she burst into laughter and sent half the yerba blasting out of her nose. Leina had “fe'schlukt” herself.
