Modern German derives its roots from the Indo-European language family. The German language falls into the Germanic branch of the family. While that may not come as a shock, it may be surprising to learn other well-known languages, such as English and Danish, also fall into the Germanic branch.
In fact, what we know as Danish today was derived from a Germanic branch named North Germanic. English and German came from the same branch, known as West Germanic. The third, and final, old branch of Germanic is called East Germanic. While it is not used today, East Germanic survives in ancient writings in what we know as the Gothic language.
The old German language was used by and derived from the Holy Roman Empire, and had dialects which varied wildly. It was the late 19th and early 20th centuries which finally saw the German language as we know it come about. It was in this period that spellings and grammar rules were set and published, and the vastly different dialects were brought together.
The modern German language comes in multiple forms, the most common distinction being that between High German and Low German. High German is the main written language of the modern German language, and is widely spoken. Low German exists as a mostly spoken language in certain parts of the northern Germany lowlands. Only rarely do we see literature published in what would be referred to as Low German; High German is much more commonly used for writing.
