Time for another word find.
Uff-Da (oo-fh dah)
Funny enough I have used this word before, and although I never knew it’s official meaning, I would refer to it when I made it through something a little tough. Something like “phew” or the likes of that. Finally I know what it means and it’s pretty close to what I thought it did, hahaha.
Uff-Da…of Norwegian origin, this phrase is used to express sensory overload. It can be used to express surprise, relief, astonishment or exhaustion. While not as widely used as some of the other MN phrases, it is perhaps the most stereotypical Minnesotan expression. 😳
Now don’t ask me where this German heard and used a Minnesotan expression of Norwegian origin. 😂
