My mom’s foster family had some “Pennsylvania Dutch”-isms such as putting sentences together in valid but ‘different’ ways, which she picked up on and passed on to me. Instead of “brush your hair” it is “Give your hair a brush”. I never thought anything of that way of saying things but occasionally kids would look at me funny.
