German: Bern...
"The Bern dialect of German is spoken in and around Bern, the
capital of Switzerland.   Although German is only one of four
official languages of Switzerland (with French, Italian, and
Romansch), it is the mother tongue of more than 70 per cent of
all Swiss.   Known as Schwitzerdütsch, it is a High German
dialect, although it differs considerably in pronunciation from
standard High German."

German: Pennsylvania...
"The Pennsylvania German dialect, often termed ‘Pennsylvania
’, is spoken by several hundred thousand people (estimates
run to more than a million), primarily in Berks, Lancaster,
Lebanon, Lehigh, Northampton, and York counties of Pennsyl-
vania.   Although Germantown was founded as early as 1683, the
great influx of Germans began in the early 18th century, when
the immigrants from the Rhenish Palatinate began to arrive.
Most of the German families were seeking religious freedom, and
tended to settle in rural areas and maintain their European cul-
ture.   Their language blended several German dialects, primarily
the Rhenish Low German, and adopted certain syntactical ele-
ments of High German and English."
