Düsseldorf accent[edit]

According to w:Hypercorrection, speakers with the Düsseldorf accent pronounce Fisch as Fich. Can this be confirmed? Rod (A. Smith) 19:39, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

Yes. It's common in the Rhineland area (not just Düsseldorf) to replace [ʃ] with [ç] due to hypercorrection. Angr 09:45, 8 October 2008 (UTC)
