German Spoken in Wisconsin

UW-Madison graduate students in Germanic linguistics continue to interview and record German heritage speakers in Wisconsin.  These Wisconsinites speak the language of their ancestors at least one generation removed from immigration.  Check out the project's new Wisconsin German Facebook Page, find more information on a new Wisconsin German Wikipedia Page, and listen to recordings from the MKI sound archive (with translations) on the American Languages - German Dialects Page.
