Do Austrians have a distinct accent? Can Germans instantly tell someone is Austrian once they start speaking, and vice versa?
>>109880492i dont fugggin know lole im amergan why tf would know bong
>>109880595based and retarded
>>109880492Yeah most of them have a weird accent. They sound a lot like Bavarians. Although I've also seen Austrians that spoke High German with no accent at all.
>>109880866Are Bohemians Germans or Austrian rapebabies? i.e. are they swarthy or not
>>109881017Yeah kind of. I always have to think of pic related when I hear "Bavarian".
>>109880492We kind of forcedly separated them after the World War, there is Austro-Bavarian sub-language or dialect how you can call it.It's spoken in South Tyrol too.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bavarian_language
>>109881017>>109881144based esl interaction
>>109880492>Why yes, I was born in Bavaria and then moved to the US when I was 4 years old how could you tell?
You don't need to hear them speak, you can tell that they are Austrian/Bavarian because they're swarthy manlets
>>109880492you an smell Germans
>>109881144>being slavic auslander among bavariansplease god release me from this hell
>>109883264Slavs are whiter than Bavarians desu
>>109880492Yes, you can hear it clearly in this Wolfenstein scene. The woman speaks with a German accent, the guy speaks with an Austrian accent.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XEkCkYQgcQk
>>109881144lol i thought all germans had blonde hair
>>109883577The most common hair color among Germans is dark blonde. Scandis are the ones who are usually blonde.
>>109883405aren't like hundreds of different accents on Germany itself?
>>109883629Well yes, but there's a standard version of German, called ''Hochdeutsch'' which is comparable to ''Received Pronunciation (RP)'' in British English.
>>109883405Sounds the fucking same. I thought I could've tell the difference since I can tell different english and italian accents but german to me sounds like a bunch of wheezing and grunts.
>>109883852Try listening to the song ''Rock Me Amadeus'' or ''Jeannie'' by Falco which is Austrian German. Austrians sound like they're overpronouncing German words.
>>109883405sounds the same.bavaran is another story, that shit sounds dead drunk
Which region’s dialect was the Hochdeutsch stemmed from?
>>109883954And why did it become that way?
>>109883954Standard speak can't derive from an specific region. Most broadcasters are told to have a certain cadence and eliminate slang in order to achieve this.
The Germans have to dub Arnold Schwarzenegger into proper German instead of his degenerate Austrian farmerspeak so I would assume so
>>109883989During the protestant reformation in the early 16th century, Martin Luther translated the bible from latin to a German vernacular that would be understood by all Germans during his ''imprisonment'' in Wartburg castle (he wasn't really imprisoned as the duke of saxony kept him there to keep him safe as he had been an outlaw by the catholic emperor of the Holy Roman Empire Charles V). Which became the basis of ''Hochdeutsch''.
>>109884287*declared an outlaw
>>109884287>>109884287I love Luther now
>>109884080Sometimes it does. Italian came from Firenze
>>109884080The neutral American accent is from the Midwest specifically.
>>109884080people in dusseldorf speak pretty much hochdeutch
>>109880492Have you ever read any German writing? They always identify each other based on regional accents. It's always dry Lower Saxon tones or stout Bavarian speech.
>>109884539but stout is dry as in irish dry stout
>>109884630Stout is strong and thick
>>109883913>Austrians sound like they're overpronouncing German words.Must be Slavic influence lol
>>109880492>Heh my cunt committed warcrimes and supposed murder of civilians I better prepare my anus for them to gift it to them to pay for my sins
Austria is run-away Bavaria, no surprise their accent is closest to Bavarians.
