Bavarian (Bairisch)

Bavarian is a continuum of Upper German varieties spoken by about 13 million people in Upper Bavaria, Lower Bavaria, and the Upper Palatinate in Germany, in most of Austria, and in South Tyrol in northern Italy. Bavarian is also spoken in the village of Samnaun in Graubünden in Switzerland, and in Sopron in Hungary.

Bavarian is mainly used as a spoken language and is rarely used in writing. Instead Standard German, which is known as Schriffdeutsch (written German), is used. There is no standard way of writing Bavarian and it is not taught in schools. There are, however, some written materials in the language, such as grammars, poetry and a translation of the Bible. Bavarian is also used in pop songs.

There are three main dialects of Bavarian:
