    Post Who are the coolest Germanic people? Poll #2

    I have made this poll to be a more clear in meaning, including only the major ethno-linguistic Germanic divisions to make it more concise and less confusing. I also attach a map for clarification on the different zones on continental Europe.

    I have excluded any Prussian element, since it does not exist anymore.

    IMO the Boers are also not a distinct Germanic grouping, even though they have developed a unique Netherlandic dialect. So if you like them, then vote for "Niederdeutsch", which is basically what they are (at least 80%).

    The sheer size and population of political Germany has necessitated a threefold division (this time more inclusive and less specific).

    I have excluded the Faroese for comparison purposes since they are a tiny division.

    Please cast your vote!

    *EDIT: Thanks to AWAR whose idea this poll was... *

    This time I gave my vote to the Icelanders, as the people on this excellent little isle kept many ancient Germanic traditions in times when they were forgotten by the Germanic peoples on the European continent...

    //

    I wonder if one shouldn't combine Ober- and Mitteldeutsch. The main dialectal borderline in Germany is that between the Low German language area and the area of the High German regional language forms (and from the High German regional languages the High German standard language developed). The division of High German into Middle and Upper German is then another levelling within the High German group, but it isn't from the same importance as the line between Low and High German.

    Confusing is that the term "Upper German" is also used sometimes for the whole High German area together if one only makes a bisection of dialectal groups into Low German and thus Upper German (= exactly High German and includes Middle as well as Upper German of the trisection system).

    That's also the system that normally is found if one makes a big division between groups of German tribes, as apparently with respect to the character, traditions and language variants of the tribes one only finds the dualism of Low and High Germans, but not of Upper (in a narrower sense) and Middle Germans marked enough for comprehending bigger groups and drawing a line between them: a) Low Germans and b) Upper or High Germans (who include the Middle and Upper Germans of the linguistic trisection).
    Compare with:
    http://www.deutsche-schutzgebiete.de...he-staemme.htm
    http://wikipedia.t-st.de/data/Deutsche_St%E4mme

    Perhaps I should create a fourth poll.

    AW: Who are the coolest Germanic people? Poll #2

    German - Oberdeutsch

    (what a revival...)
    Die Intellektuellen von heute versuchen, den Nationalismus als eine Sünde gegen die Menschlichkeit zu brandmarken. Sie versuchen, uns glauben zu machen, daß dem Wort Nationalismus eine Infamie anhängt. Aber sie verkennen, daß der Geist des Nationalismus aus der schöpferischen Tiefe der menschlichen Seele stammt. Daß er aufsteigt von dort als das gewaltige Verlangen der Menschen, frei zu sein, frei von fremder Herrschaft, und sich nach eigener Art selber zu regieren! Herbert Hoover
