Speaking Texas German (Yes, There Is Such A Thing)
"A century ago, more than 100,000 people in a large swathe of south central Texas spoke the dialect. To the uninitiated, it sounds like a strange mishmash of English and German. Today, perhaps 8,000 people can speak it, the youngest of whom are in their 60s." Global Post 02/07/13 (includes audio)
