German Standard German,[1][2] Standard German of Germany,[3][4] or High German of Germany[5] is the variety of Standard German that is written and spoken in Germany.[1][2][6] It is the variety of German most commonly taught to foreigners. It is not uniform, which means it has considerable regional variation.[7] Anthony Fox asserts that British English is more standardized than German Standard German.[7]
