Re: Living in upper Schwyz

"Outer" Schwyz sounds odd in English although it would be the direct translation of "ausser" Schwyz. "Upper" wouldn't be correct as we don't say "Oberschwyz".
Meanwhile, here in Ticino, "Svizzera interna" literally translates as "Innerschweiz", but nominally means ALL of the German speaking bits, and practically also ALL of the French speaking bits! (basically, anything beyond the Ticinese passes).
