The German language is the official language of Germany and Austria along with being an official language of Switzerland. It is spoken by about 90 million people worldwide. It belongs to the West Germanic group of languages within the Indo-European languages (same as English, Frisian and Dutch).
The first recorded event of the German language stems from the 1st century BC, having had contact with the Romans. For many years after, there was only one Germanic language and within that language, very few dialects. It was only until the 500s AD that the German language, also known as High German, was officially known as German.
German Grammar & Syntax
In German, there are four cases for nouns, pronouns and adjectives (nominative, accusative, genitive and dative) along with three genders (masculine, feminine and neutral) and two sorts of verbs (strong and weak). Across all dialects of German, the language is written itself. However, it is not spoken similarly between dialects. High German and Low German are the two main dialect groups. High German (Hochdeutsch), which is the official language of the South Highlands in Germany, is the official written language.
There are two main sorts of dialects in German where most other dialects fall into. The first is High German (Hochdeutsch) and the second is Low German (Plattsdeutsch or Niederdeutsch).
High German was spoken until the 12th century in the Highlands of South Germany. During the Middle High German times, which were after the 12th century, different dialects of German known as Alemannic and Bavarian started to gain popularity.
The High German of today comes primarily from Middle High German dialects that were spoken in the Southern and central Highlands of Germany along within Austria and Switzerland.
High German is used in all official businesses, such as government, administration, higher education, literature and media. Standard High German is very similar to the Middle German language dialect used most commonly by Martin Luther in the 1500s as he translated the Bible.
