The History of German

The history of the German language begins with Old High German and crosses Middle and Early New High German to New High German, spoken since around the mid-17th Century. There is a smooth transition between these four main linguistic periods of history. The German language formed over a long time through territorial splits in the Middle Ages, and through numerous dialects. A standardised German language was only finally achieved in the 16th Century after Luther’s translation of the Bible into Early New High German and later literary works by poets such as Goethe or Schiller. After the formation of the German Reich, attempts increased to unify and standardise the language; this was expressed by the establishment of a standard pronunciation for public speaking, for example on stage. In 1880, Konrad Duden published the first orthographical German dictionary which was officially confirmed in 1901 as a standard for spelling.

The Spread of German

German belongs to the Indo-Germanic languages, and together with Dutch, Frisian, Danish, English, Swedish, Norwegian, Icelandic and Faroese forms the Germanic language group. It is an official language on a national level in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Luxembourg and Liechtenstein, and is an official regional language in East Belgium and Italy (South Tyrol). Furthermore, it is spoken as a minority language in France, Denmark, Poland, Romania, Hungary, Russia, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Siberia, the Netherlands, the Ukraine, Croatia, the Republic of Moldova, Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania. Beyond Europe, there are linguistic enclaves in Canada, the USA, Brazil, Mexico, Paraguay, Argentina, Australia, Namibia and in the Republic of South Africa. Approximately 222 million people speak German, approx. 101 million of which are native speakers. German therefore is ranked as the ninth most commonly spoken language in the world.

The German vocabulary contains between 300,000 and 500,000 words, not counting the words from various dialects and terminologies. This makes German one of the most verbose languages in the world.
