Allemanisch (Allemanisch)

A German dialect of Alsace. The designation of the dialect, or group of dialects, spoken in Alsace is Elsässisch. It belongs to the group of Germanic dialects known as Allemanisch, which also includes languages spoken in Baden-Wurtemberg and around Canton-Basel. The whole zone corresponds to the zone settled by the Allemanic tribe, which included Alsace. Moreover, Allemanic can also refer to a smaller sub-group, also known as Sundgovien, that is separate from Elsässisch.

Allemanish on

To find foods and foods and food-related items in in Allemanisch you may search by any of the following terms:
Allemanic Allemanisch Allemanische Alps Alsace Alsacienne Alsatian Baden Basel Black Canton Forest France French German Germany Sundgovien Swiss Switzerland Voges Wurtemberg

These terms associated with languages are hidden behind the scenes as there is some crossover with other languages and, in some cases, the Allemanisch has been absorbed into the German. This is not intended to be offensive and I apologise to anyone who feels affronted. In the same way I have included 'Indian' in the search terms for foods of Sri Lanka, 'English' in searches of the food glossary for Welsh or Scottish. It is simply to aid the traveller, often ignorant of the finer detail.

You may use any of the above terms in any search you make using 'Translate from English' so that if you wish to search for a translation of mushroom, choose whichever of these language terms that you think is most appropriate, say:
'allemanisch mushroom' and then click on 'Translate from English'.

One of the problems of providing searches in a multilingual world-wide food dictionary is trying to help people reach the things they are searching for. People do not always know the precise language being used, so these more general searches such as  'German' may help in a successful search.

Also included in the glossary are dishes from the cuisine of the region, cookery terms, cooking methods, drinks, food festivals, days of the week, months of the year etc.
