Re: What does it mean: Swiss German?

I can suggest something that sounds a little similar.

You're not getting nothing! (e.g. to appease someone who fears they might not get a slice of cake when everyone else is getting a slice)
Du chunsch nd nt br!
You get not nothing.

It's not as if you can't come down! (e.g. to encourage someone stuck up a tree, or to give a cheeky response to someone who just didn't make it to get in a full lift/elevator going down).
Du chusch niid nd abbe.
You come not not down.

Do my examples work, please, Captain Greybeard, or something along those lines?
