Re: Paternity Leave

Our of curiosity, what reference do they use for chaps on military "leave"? Not sure I've ever heard it referred to as "urlaub". Or maybe I'm mistaken?
Surely it would be easier to just come up with a word for the odd occasions when they actually have to work?

Re: Paternity Leave

Urlaub isn't part of the spoken Swiss German vocabulary. Yes the legal thing is called Mutterschaftsurlaub, you may (very rarely) see it used in some texts but you won't hear it in a conversation except with the meaning of military leave.
