    English

    English is closer to French than it is to Swedish, presumably due to the Norman French loan words.

    Genetic similarity is a different matter, but, logically, Danes should be the model Germanics for such a list.
    Lets compare all of the above Countries with England in terms of Germanic Y-DNA..
    The Netherlands I have read, is the most Germanic if you use this factor

There´s also a quite marginal Czech and Slovak impact (former Bohemia) in the North, especially in Vienna, but that doesn´t make Austria significantly less Germanic than Bavaria or other German parts. Most of these slightly mixed periphery zones have their root in the former Habsburg Empire.

    Slavic influence in Austria (or among east germans) is very ovverrated and strongly connected to the pan-slavic propaganda. Burgenland have never been ethnic hungarian, never in the history, the real capital of Burgenland, called Ödenburg (now it's a part of Hungary) was also mostly german. Hungarians, slavs were only minority there, and the first one had tons of germanic influence (i mean genetic) just like czechs and slovenes, so it doesn't make austrians less germanic.

    As stated before linguistically "germanic" means a principal branch of the Indo-European family of languages, comprising the languages descended from Proto-Germanic: it is divided into three groups
    : East Germanic, (including Gothic), North Germanic, (Norwegian, Danish, Swedish, Icelandic, Old Norse, etc.), and West Germanic
    (English, Dutch, German, Yiddish, Frisian, etc.)

    Germanic is used to describe the ancient culture and language of the peoples of northern Europe.

    Following those two definitions, Austria would of course be Germanic.
