I joined The Alphabet Club hosted by lovely Chiara over at "The Grey Tail".
So here is my word for this month:
You can hear the word spoken here. I would pronounce it a little different, the speaker is definitely not from our region, but it gives you an idea.
There is a lot of wine grown around here, both white (Grüner Veltliner, Riesling...) and red (Zweigelt, Blauburger...) one and many winegrowers have small wine bars that are open for a few weeks every year, named Heuriger. There the wine and the food (only cold dishes allowed) are rather cheap and it is the perfect place to spend a warm summer evening. You usually order your wine by the amount of an "Achterl", which means 1/8 of a liter. If I would like to order a glass of red house wine I therefore would say "A Achterl Rot, bitte" (the "A" means "Ein" = "One" in Viennese German, so this month's letter alone would also be a word).
I'm looking forward to seeing what everybody else posted, hope you all have fun with this idea!
Greetings to all of you, I am off to the next Heurigen! ;-)
