Can someone cognate this out for me?
I'm thinking rum for standard German herum 'about, around' and springa for springen 'to jump, hop, spring, gambol'. There is a verb herumspringen 'to bop around' in the dictionary, but I've never heard it used. Perhaps wsieber in der Schweiz can illuminate better.
