Miene Muttasproak (Plautdietsch)
Added by olga_k
Plautdietsch started as a North-eastern German dialect (with some Dutch influence) spoken in 18th century Prussia. When Mennonite settlers took it with them, first to the Russian empire, later to the Americas, it developed into the internationally spoken minority language it is today. Plautdietsch has around half a million speakers, most notably in Latin America. The poem's author was born in the Soviet Union and migrated to Germany in the end of the 20th century. The speaker reads a poem about Plautdietsch as native language.
