This is one of those words that could be the basis of a schwiizerdütsch Laurel and Hardy skit.

out to dinner:

OH: wetsch gärn s'schnappsli?

Me: aber s'isch twoer, gau?

OH: nei!, s'isch 'tdüürr'!

Me: ja, toar?!

OH: 'tdüüürr'!

Me: klar! tooher!

OH: Nei!! s'isch 'tdüüüür! üüü, üüü, üüüürr! tdüüüürrr!

Me: glad we agree

Some actual swiss German

Taardadaa?
Jadataarda.
Dadadataar
Swiss German ? Konrad Beikircher used this as an example of local Bonn/Cologne-dialect. And he linked the last line to Beethoven´s Fifth.

This was back in the 90s, pre-YouTube.

Clearly northeastern Thurgau or Schaffhausen. First time I heard it was in the early 'sixties, years before Beikircher moved from South Tyrol to Köln.

Taar daa daa? (St. Gallen: Tarf daa das?)
Jo, daa taar daa. (St.Gallen: Jo, daa tarf das)
Da daa daa taar? (St. Gallen: Dass daa das tarf?)

Re: Tdüüüüürrrrr
