Short phrase transcription

Hey SoBizarre

I just listened to the audio file. The person in the Audio File is saying "Des isch(t) gut". This actually means

"This is good" in English. It is not standard high german, therefore it is not very easy to understand. In standard high german this sentence would need to be "Das ist gut".

Hope that helps. If you need help with different audio files, let me know. I will be glad to help.

Thank you very much for your help, linguaholic.

Now it finally makes a perfect sense. The story (fantasy by Polish author A. Sapkowski) takes place in Silesia, during Hussite Wars, so that explains the archaism.

Thanks again,
