What is the Pennsylvania Dutch word for "The Answer?"?

In German it s "Die Antwort," And in Afrikaans it is "Die Antwoord," and in Dutch it is "Het Antwoord." So I m assuming the PA Dutch word for the Answer is got to be similar to either "Die Antwoord," in Afrikaans, or "Die Antwort," in German, or "het antwoord," in Dutch.

    Pennsylvania Dutch are decendents from German immigrants and speak a german dialect, not Dutch. The term "Dutch" in Pennsylvania Dutch comes from Dutchland and has no relationship to Holland (Netherland).

    Having said that, I don't know the answer to your question.
