About Alsatian

The Alsatian language, also known as the Alsatian German dialect and the Alsatian dialect, is the traditional language of the Alsace region in north-east France. It is a Germanic regional language of France, similar to and largely intelligible with standard German. Speakers of Alsatian, called Alsacien in French, declined in numbers after the Second World War when French was favoured at the expense of the Alsatian language. Alsatian has since undergone a revival supported by the Collectivité européenne d’Alsace and other community associations. Local variations of the language mean that Alsatian speakers from different areas sometimes use different spellings as well as different words or phrases. uTalk recorded a male native Alsatian speaker from the north of the region and a female from the south.
