History of Hutterite German

The Hutterites, the Anabaptist cousins of the Amish people, have their own language called Hutterisch, a German dialect. It is different from the Amish that some are accustomed to hearing.

The Hutterites and their movement began in the 16th century when Jakob Hutter became the chief elder in 1533. There are about 490 colonies of Hutterites today. Among those are three specific groups: Schmiedeleut, Dariusleut, and Lehrerleut. They have the same documents of faith but they dress differently and live in different areas from each other. Additionally, different colonies have different leaders (or elders). Similar to the Amish, the Hutterites believe in adult baptism. Hutterisch, which is the language the Hutterites speak, is a Carinthian German language spoken by Hutterites in Canada and the US and also by some Prairie People, known as Prairieleit. Other names for Hutterisch are Carinthian German, Hutterian German, and Hutterite German.

Hutterite Demographics

Over 40,000 people speak it worldwide, mainly in the Alberta, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan provinces in Canada. The language falls under the Indo-European, Germanic, West, High German, German, Upper German and Bavarian-Austrian classification of languages. There are multiple dialects of Hutterisch, such as Pennsylvanian German, Plautdiestch, Tyrolean, and Standard. The language uses written Latin script. Because there are so many dialects, it can be hard for an interpreter or translator to work with Hutterite German, so call us.

The Hutterites live in colonies while the Prairie People live in many parts of the world. They decided not to live in a community when they came to North America in the 1800s. Hutterite German is originally from Carinthia, which is in the Eastern Alps in the southern part of Austria. Where a German word would have a short vowel, the Hutterisch version of that word would have a long vowel. Hutterisch dialects shift and vary. Someone who speaks Hutterisch can tell what Hutterite colony the stranger belongs to simply by the way they speak.

Because of the disbursement of the Hutterites, their language has many loanwords from Poland and other European languages. To the dismay of the Hutterite people, the language has more and more English words as many Hutterites live in English speaking countries. However, even in European countries where English is not the primary speaking language, Hutterite German is gaining more and more English words in its vocabulary.

The Hutterites are very big on family, community, freedom, are very welcoming, have a lot of faith, and are heavily self-sufficient.
