Usage notes[edit]

  • Varieties of standard German or modern colloquial German are not commonly called Dialekte. Moreover, the word is not commonly used for non-regional varieties of language such as Soziolekte (“sociolects”). This is often in contrast to the terminology of Anglophone, particularly American, linguistics.
