A brief introduction to the German language
German is a Western-Germanic language and belongs to the Indo-European language family. Throughout the Middle Ages, the Germanic dialects that were subject to the second Germanic consonant shift evolved into German or High German, the dialects that were not affected by this shift led to what is nowadays known as Low German.
Standard German was, up until the beginning of the 19th century, an almost exclusively written language. During that same period (the Middle Ages, but also later), states that were very different from one another were established in Central Europe, and every single one of these states had its own language. The unification of all of them was attempted for the first time in the 11th century, although it was not completely achieved until Martin Luther translated the Bible in the 1500s.
Nowadays, it is estimated that there are 105 million native and 80 million non-native speakers of German and therefore has most native speakers in the European Union. German is the official language of Germany, Austria and Liechtenstein and co-official in Belgium (along with French and Dutch), in Switzerland (with French, Italian and Romansh), in Luxembourg (with French and Luxembourgish) and in some regions of Italy.
German is an inflectional language, which does not only affect the end of the word (as in Latin) but also its root. As a consequence, conjugations and declensions are more complex.
It is a language with a very rigid structure that always places the verb in the second position of a main sentence.
With regards to pronunciation, it is spoken as it is written.
Compound words are formed from simple words, although the addition of words does not necessarily always lead to the addition of meaning.
There are three types of declension in German: strong, weak and mixed. Likewise, there are three genders (masculine, feminine and neuter), singular and plural numbers and four cases (nominative, genitive, dative and accusative).
