comment Double quotes in Switzerland for German texts (Guillemets/Gänsefüsschen)
I agree with Georg Schölly that „…“ is used in general. However, in printed media Gullimets « ... » are commonly used. Just to be sure I checked a newspaper and a mag today. You can see the use of Gullimets on the websites of the major Swiss newspapers as well. See NZZ or Tagesanzeiger for example.

comment Woher kommt die schweizerdeutsche Verstärkung “huren…”?
Es gibt auch noch die stärkere Variante: "uhuere". Von der Bedeutung her ist dieses Wort identisch mit "huere". Stärker ist es deshalb weil "u" ebenfalls dazu verwendet wird, die Bedeutung eine Adjektivs zu verstärken. z.B. "es isch u kalt".

comment What's the difference between “Dialekt” and “Mundart”?
Most of the time yes. For example a song written in Mundart is a song written in swiss-german, it doesn't matter which dialect of swiss-german it is.
