Pfälzisch Question Answered

I went out to dinner with some colleagues from another part of our institution and one member of the group is from this area and speaks the local German dialect, Pfälzisch. I had heard what sounds like (in English) "doe" being said around here and was curious about that. Our dining companion said that it's like the word "da" but they say "do" (I forgot to ask how it would be spelled so I'm guessing there; maybe it has an umlaut) and it means "there."

So, "do" you go.
