In the hills of southern Germany, Old High German, a group of languages for which there was no common literary vocabulary, was spoken before 1100. In the southernmost region of the German language area, a basic fundamental based on the Higher German varieties (Alemannic or Bavarian) emerged during the Late High German times (about 1100). The enormous literature, which included the epic Nibelungenlied in the early 13th century, was written in Middle High German. The spoken dialect of the northern German lowlands is low German, which lacks contemporary literary standards.
