The Viennese Dialect (Austrian German vs. German German)
Austrian German, Austrian Standard German, Standard Austrian German or Austrian High German, is the variety of Standard German written and spoken in Austria. It has the highest sociolinguistic prestige locally, as it is the variation used in the media and for other formal situations. In Germany, however, Standard Austrian German is still confused with some regional standard that is not considered "pure".. This despite sound evidence that 80% of Austrian high school students and 90% of Austrian high school teachers consider German a pluricentric language, with more than one standard variety.
