It told me so - Ähs hat mir's gesaat

Sehr nett und lustig: Die englischsprachige Wikipedia versucht den saarländischen Dialekt zu erklären:
Women and girls are often referred to using the neuter grammatical gender, es, with the pronunciation being something like Ähs. Ähs hat mir's gesaat (it told me so, instead of she told me so; vs. High German: Sie hat es mir gesagt). This stems from the word Mädchen (girl) being neuter in German (es is correct in German when referring to words like Mädchen but would not be used by itself in reference to a woman).
