    Post German: The Most Masculine Language!

    Achtung

    More like scared by the sound. Sometimes I wish beautiful German women could speak French .

    German is definitely more masculine. It is clear.

    I hope I don't appear disparaging and chauvinistic here, but being rather familiar with the German language (I have always regarded it as my 1st foreign language), I can, by comparison, not quite agree with you.

    I am a native speaker of a Slovene dialect, and the standard Slovene language is the one that sounds the most "masculine" to me.

    Its tone is rigid, the rules for pronunciation strict and it appears less melodic and harsher in tone than other Slavic languages. It may be because of the peculiar history of the language itself.

    The difference between my dialect and the standard speech is remarkably great and it is said to be bigger than between Ukrainian and Russian, Norwegian (Bokmaal/Riksmaal) and Danish, and from my own observations I can assert that it's bigger than between standard German (Hochdeutsch) and Swiss German (Schweizerdeutsch). My dialect doesn't appear all that "rigid", let alone the enunciation, which is entirely different from the standard variant.

    The entire picture of the language is rather awe-inspiring, but as I said, that is very subjective in my case. Maybe one of you should hear it and judge.

    I do not claim that Slovene sounds more virile, rapping or anything than German, but the opposite isn't the case either.

    I have also realised that I can speak German and Slovene (Hungarian, too) with the same pitch, whereas for English I have to raise it in order to have an authentic accent.

    Triglav, I am interested in this. Do you have any idea what percentage of loanwords Slovene has taken from Deutsch?

    I think it matters more what kind of voice the person has. A gruff bulldyke will make even French sound horrid.

    You make this BOLD! statement inspite of the likelihood that you have NOT! heard EVERY spoken language known to man! lol Volks. I can't recall what your native langauge is (sorry, lad , but I suspect it's not English. So I wonder where you're coming from vocally with all this!

    I'm a native English speaker as with some others participating on this site. To my 'English' ears, there are INDEED some speakers of German that have a definite MASCULINE sound, but this is not univeral. Obviously, female and adolescent speakers of deutsch sound minimally if at all masculine to English ears, imo. If I can think of one aspect of German speech off the top of my head that sounds the most masculine of all (to English ears) it is the gutteral sound in typical German. Schwyzerduetsch (a form of hochdeutsch for those of you who don't know any better) is one form of deutsch that to my ears doesn't sound harsh/rough/masculine--It's to me more soft-sounding/melodic...very Svensk-like, very pleasurable to the ears (English ones, that is). I love to hear speech/audio along the lines of Schwyzerduetsch, Svensk, etc.--such are the vocals of down-home folks!, minimally 'harsh/rough/masculine,' & to the max. generally pleasant and warm--as my 'English' ears go, that is!

    Volksdeutsche is from Sweden.

    Schwyzerdütsch, the most masculine dialect? Hmm... for us it sounds more like croaking. The most earthy and strong German dialect is without doubt Bairisch (Bavarian). By the way, every German will certify that the most unpleasant sounding German dialect is Sächsisch (Saxon) - except for the Saxons themselves. Only Kanakendeutsch, the "German" of Turkish youths who can't speak it properly and have their own slang expressions etc., is worse.

    I don't think you can speak for every German, with that claim that the saxon dialect is the most unpleasent. I rather like it. For my ears "Schwäbisch" is the most unpleasent. (Having to listen to interviews with manfred Rommel I always considered a form of torture :p ) I dont know how to express it, but I always feel it sounds so bourgois and provincial "schaffe, schafe Häusle baue". It's on the same level with "Kölnisch" (cologne) and certain dialects from Vienna.

    From my Grandmother I was told, that the most "clean" and precise German was the "Prager-Hochdeutsch".
