Re: What does it mean: Swiss German?

No, there's no such thing in Swiss German.

I'm a native speaker and know all the dialects pretty well and speak quite a few of them well enough to fool locals, but your sentence simply doesn't make sense.

Maybe you misheard something. I remember when my now wife, from the US Midwest, overheard conversations between me and my ex and then asked me why we had been talking about Wisconsin and the Baltic Sea so much. Honestly, I still don't know what we said that she mistook for those place names.
Any suggestion though? A native speaker of any language is supposed to have some sort of intuition in regards with the way non-native speakers pronounce or hear certain words...

OP, maybe if you provide more context? To me it seems jacek is spot on, but I am not a native speaker of course.
