Public lecture by Dr. Mark Louden (University of Wisconsin-Madison) sponsored by the German Section of the Dept. of World Languages, Literatures and Cultures and Delta Phi Alpha National German Honor Society. 

America’s oldest and most widely spoken German-related language is Pennsylvania Dutch. It is used today by over 400,000 people, mostly Amish and traditional Mennonites, in thirty-two US states, including Arkansas, and four Canadian provinces. In this presentation we will explore how Pennsylvania Dutch developed from German dialects brought by immigrants to colonial America to become the fastest growing language on the planet.
