  • German dialect for zwei (two) heard by me just SW of Heidelberg in the early 1980's. After a long day marching through the countryside observing celery fields and potato crops complete with dried-applehead-doll cherry-cheeked women tending an ancient potato harvester, and watching tweed-clad hunters with Dachshunds under their free arms stalking rabbits, pheasants and weasels, a bus ride back into town cost zwo Deutschmark.

  • Is this really a regional variation? I thought that it was common practice in all parts of Germany to use 'zwo' rather than 'zwei' when quoting phone numbers, to avoid any potential confusion with the digit 'drei'.
