comment Is there anything like a dime?
This map is absolutely wrong. I have never heard anyone in Austria say anything like what the map says. Groschen was heavily used in Austria. After all it was part of the official currency. We had Schilling and Groschen.

@Sebastian True. That form is used in rather rural areas. However Dere is very common even in cities like Graz and Vienna, maybe especially in Vienna.
