「Hougen of the Day」 したっけ (shitakke) [Hokkaido-ben]

したっけ (shitakke) [Hokkaido-ben]
The common Hokkaido-ben word したっけ has two different meanings and uses, the first as a conjunction meaning “and then” and the second as a greeting meaning “bye, see you.”

1. and then, so, (standard Japanese counter part is そうしたら)
Example:
昨日スーパーに行った。したっけ、強盗にやられた。
Kinou su-pa- ni itta. Shitakke, goutou ni yarareta.
(“Yesterday I went to the supermarket. Then I got robbed.”)

2. casual salutation used amongst friends when parting, “bye,” “see you” (similar to standard Japanese じゃ)
Example:

したっけ!また明日!
Shitakke! Mata ashita!
(“Bye! See you tomorrow!”)
