Talk:Hutterite German

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search


In my penultimate edit (the one whose summary promised something on this Talk page), I assumed that Hutterite German is inaccurately called "Tirolean" because Hutterite communities once spoke a Tirolean dialect, but that they switched to a Carinthian dialect in the 18th century. At least, that's how I read what was there before, which wasn't perfectly clear. Please correct me if this was a false assumption! -- Toby 03:10 Feb 10, 2003 (UTC)

Calling these communities colonies[edit]

These German Hutterite communities are referred to as "colonies" throughout this article. Thats inconsistent with the descriptions of other diaspora language communities and is certainly not a linguistic term to referring to exclave language groupings. The term may have been applicable in the Colonial Era, but its 2010 and the wording should reflect contemporary usage, linguistic basis and common understanding of the word "colony".Napkin65 (talk) 17:46, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

Hutterite settlements are widely referred to as "Colonies". This has nothing to do with the Colonial Era. Dan Holsinger (talk) 17:37, 9 November 2015 (UTC)
