Central Franconian[edit]

Alternative forms[edit]

  • Schol (southernmost Moselle Franconian)

Etymology[edit]

The expected outcome of Old High German scuola would be šūl in southern Moselle Franconian, and šōl in northern Moselle Franconian and Ripuarian. The actual vocalism, namely šōl in the very south, šul elsewhere, implies an Old High German form *scōla through (re-)adaptation to Latin schola. This would also explain Luxembourgish Schoul (see there).

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

Schull f (plural Schulle)

  1. (most dialects) school
