    Question Which Countries Are Germanic?

    Which countries counts to the germanic countries?

    Austria, Germany, Switzerland(?), The Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Sweden - that's all? (They've got very similar-sounding languages)
    Is England also "a little bit" germanic, because of similar words? But it differs very in gramar...

    You summed up most Germanic Countries in Europe, defined as countries where a Germanic language is spoken. To make it complete: from Switzerland only the German part, then also Flanders, Liechtenstein, Luxemburg, several border regions to Germany and Austria (Alsace, Southern Tyrol). And not as last: Iceland! (Which country could be today more Germanic than this glorious little country?)

    England is without doubt a Germanic country and English is from its roots and fundaments, from its structure, grammar and verbs a Germanic language, though there are quite many words from French and Latin origin.

    New Germanic countries overseas: USA (at least still in parts), Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa (in the parts where the whites still resist against the black threat).

    Deutsche Stämme und Dialekte - Karte 1914

    Germany, Switzerland (deutsche Kantonen), Austria (and old austrian-german cities in the balkans, such as the Banat), Luxemburg, Belgium, the Netherlands, Great Brittian (and parts of Celtic countries such as Dublin, Ireland - an old Viking fort), Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finnland (small parts of swedish settlers), Iceland, France (Elsaß-Lothringen und Normandy - settled by Vikings), there are so many more germanic people spread around the world...

    Then there are countries that speak germanic languages and germanic settlers in foreignlands like Amerika and Canada, Afrikaaners, Australians, Newzeelanders (etc.).

    Ireland has many Viking towns, and Our language is predominantly Englis, however we are not a germanic country, our official language is Irish and most of our celtic nationalist people would be aghast at the thought of us being refered to as english as is suggested on your map

    Agreed. But then you aren't celtic either. The celtic past is something you and the Scotch decided on a couple of hundred years ago to gain access to a literary and artistic reputation you wouldn't otherwise (and don't) deserve. Real Irish and Scotch history is dull and bovine and utterly mundane. That's why they decided to make it 'celtic'.

    I would say that the Germanic countries of the "Old World" include Germany,Austria,the German cantons of Switzerland,Flanders and the German part of Belgium,the Netherlands,Sweden,Norway,Denmark,Icelan d,the Faroes and England.
    A note on England: England isnt just "a little bit Germanic" they are Germanic and no less than any of the other peoples. Modern English developed out of Middle English which in turn developed out of Old English which is remarkably similar to modern German and Dutch in both vocabulary,syntax and grammar.
    It is only the coming of William the Bastard in 1066 that Norman French words were introduced into the English word hoard and even those words are not words in every day useage by the common folk. The core of English vocabulary is pure Germanic with next to no Celtic loan words.
    People forget that England owes its very existence to the German tribes which started to colonise and conquer it from the fifth century onwards.
    It is this Germanic blood and inheritance which sets England apart from Scotland,Wales and Ireland.
    One should also consider if in the "New World the countries of Canada,the USA,New Zealand and Australia shoudl be consiedered Germanic as the core original immigrant colonialist population is of Germanic descent.Apart from the fact that they speak English, a Germanic tongue.

    LOL! You shouldn't make your jealousy so glaring, nor be so ungrateful. Especially when it was some of these so-called dull, bovine and mundane peoples who had to educate your benighted ancestors when they were first washed up on British shores

    Anyway, it's ironic that Tolkein basically made your same claims, except he was reffering to England. That was why he created the whole Middle-Earth mythology. He said that there is much culture associated with the soil of England, but not much with the English themselves which is why they have had to borrow Celtic tales such as King Arthur to use as their own and have usurped the name of the previous Celtic inhabitants for themselves now - British

    Post Countries That Are Predominantly Germanic

    Here is my list:

    Australia
    Austria
    Denmark
    England
    Germany
    Iceland
    Northern Italy
    Norway
    Scotland
    South Africa
    Sweden

    Honourable mention:
    Argentina (many Germans went here after WW2, much German blood)
    Canada
    Czechoslovakia
    Finland (A few Swedish immigrants, many Finnish people seem Germanic)
    Ireland- (If they're celtic they're germanic)
    Northern Poland (which still has some Geman descendants leftover from Prussia)
    Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia may have some good Germanic blood as well
    Hungary may also still have some Germanic blood left...
    United States

    Question: Are the modern Dutch, Belgian, and Swiss people Germanic? What about Lichtenstein and Luxembourg?

    Non Germanic Europeans:

    France
    Spain
    Portugal
    Italy (except the north, old Tyrol)
    Russia
    Poland (except old Prussia)
    Croatia
    Bosnia & Herzogovina
    Slovenia

    Generalizations. What do you think?
