  1. thought, idea
    • 2001, Lex Roth, Eng Klack for eis Sprooch:
      An eiser Sprooch soll deemno, wéi et schéngt, alles erlaabt sinn, nëmme well Sprooch-Lazerte sech keng Méi a keng Gedanken, héchstens topeg Bemierkungen iwwer dat „Handwierksgeschier“ maache wëllen, mat deem si hir Kuuscht verdéngen.
      In our language, therefore, it seems that everything should be allowed, just because people who are reckless with language want to make no effort and no thought; at the most, silly remarks about the "tools", with which they earn their crust.
