Austrian German

Austrian German is a form of High German and differs in many ways from the standard language spoken in Germany. Pronunciation is different, and the vocabulary includes a great many words that only it has adopted from other languages. It is spoken by more than eight million people. Austrian German, like the neighbouring ‘German’ German and Swiss German, is a member of the Germanic language family, which also includes English, and that family is, in turn, a member of the Indo-European family of languages. The most distinctive difference between Austrian standard German and German standard German is that the ‘p’, ‘t’, and ‘k’ and the umlaut are pronounced more softly. Austrian German also has a great many words that no other Germanic language, variant, or dialect has which have been borrowed from other languages. This is because Austria was once the centre of the Austrian-Hungarian empire. Twenty-three of these terms are protected by the accession treaty of Austria to the EU as recognition of this language variety’s identity.
