The language of Austria can be traced back to the Germanic branch of the Indo-European family. The most widely spoken dialect of the Germanic branch is called Austrian German, which is derived from the Latin albus, meaning "hill, plain". Despite its many differences, both standard German and Austrian German are considered to be mutually comprehensible, meaning that a native German will generally understand Austrian German just as easily as he understands standard German. The dialect can also be traced back to Saxon, which is the language of southern Germany.
The common dialectal elements that appear throughout the dialect include many sounds and patterns. The most notable ones are the guttural sounds that are present in many Austrian words. These guttural sounds are made by changing the sounds of consonants and vowels to produce sounds that are similar to human speech. The variations of such sounds are quite numerous and include various nasal sounds and the "O" sound. Other Austrian sounds, while not as prevalent, include the high and low vowels, as well as the "s" sound. A typical accent is used for Germanic and Baltic dialects, where the long a is pronounced as two syllables, with the first one being lower than the second. The middle a is usually pronounced as one syllable.
The most important accent used is the Austrian High German accent. This accent is very similar to that of French. Because of its close resemblance, the majority of Austrians often have trouble saying things in English correctly in a non-High German accent. As with any other accent, the Austrian High German accent is a mixture of different dialectal influences from the various areas of Europe. The most significant influences from this region are found in Bavaria, where most of the most important figures of the Middle Ages were born. Austria has also had plenty of contact with Germany during the ages, including contact with the Frankish nobility as well as the Catholic church. Although the population of Austria has always been predominantly German, the German population of Austria has risen dramatically since the advent of the First World War, and there is currently an Austrian national minority.
