German language, origin and dialects spoken over the world.

 

Origin and History

German, one of the world's largest languages, is a West Germanic language predominantly spoken in Central Europe and a national language in Namibia. In the West Germanic branch, German is most related to other languages, including Afrikaans, Dutch, English, Friesian, Low German (Low Saxon), Luxembourgish, Scots and Yiddish. There are also strong parallels between Danish, Norwegian, and Swedish in vocabulary, but these belong to the North Germanic group.

The Germanic languages started in the 1st century BCE with the first contact of their speakers with the Romans. There was only a common 'Germanic' language at the time and for many years thereafter, with nothing more than slight variations in dialect. One can only speak the "German" language after around the 6th century CE. After English, German is the second most spoken German language.

 

Dialects

German dialects are dialects often treated as languages and are categorised under the umbrella term "German". Although differed by area, those below the Benrath line in the southern half of Germany are dominated by the regional distribution of the High German consonant shift, and the dialect continues to relate German to the neighbouring Low Franconian (Dutch) and Friesian varieties. The German varieties are conventionally classified into Upper German, Central German and Low German; the High German subgroup forms Upper and Central German. Standard German is a standardised variant of High German, which was formed based on a mixture of Central German and Upper German varieties in early modern times.

 

Countries spoken

In Germany, Austria, Switzerland, South Tyrol, Italy, and Liechtenstein, it is the most used and official or co-official language. There are also other countries where German is spoken outside Europe, such as Kazakhstan, Namibia, and South Africa. There are other areas of the world where a tiny fraction of the population still speaks German. The German language has also been introduced to the regions of the United States, Chile, Norway, Brazil, Mexico, Australia, Paraguay, Uruguay, and Venezuela by the German diaspora.
