    Austin would probably know about this.


    Texas German is a regional variant of the German language spoken by the descendants of the German immigrants to Texas in and around the Hill Country. It is almost a dead language only spoken by some older folks. Hopefully it can see a sort of revival but I do not think the interest is there.

    According to the article "82,100 German-speakers reside in the state of Texas but most of those are probably not Texas German speakers."


    Do you have have dying regional dialects or languages from your area or ones that you just think are interesting?

    Cornish is a dying language.

    As for dialects my area? Yam Yam but sometimes I venture out into the most peasantish areas and I really don't think it's dying out.

    It's said that many languages, if not most languages, will likely die. Many only have 1, 2, or 3 speakers. Some of these languages are the only ones representative of their language family such as Kusunda from Nepal which currently has only 8 speakers. Kusunda may have been the language that dominated the Himalayas or Northern India until the advent of Indo-Iranian languages and Tibeto-Burman languages.

    Cornish is dead. It has been revived to a certain extent (approx 3000 speakers), but not enough for it to be called a living language.
