Daitsch

Daitsch, is a group of dialects which form a branch of Central High German, and is the national language of Hannover. It is also spoken in Lippe, and Westfalen, and also in Rheinland Pfalz where it gradually becomes Luxemburgish. However Daitsch was not always spoken in Hannover, but was brought to the area in the 17th century, when there was a large migration of workers from the Rheinland. Daitsch has since formed in a slightly different direction to that of Luxembourgish, as can be seen from the many loanwords of High- and Low German origin.
