High Franconian German
High Franconian (German: Oberfränkisch) is a part of High German consisting of East Franconian and South Franconian. It is part of the Franconian languages area, spoken southeast of the Rhine Franconian area. It is spoken in Germany around Karlsruhe, Nuremberg, Erlangen, Fürth, Bamberg, Heilbronn, Meiningen and Würzburg and a small area in France. It is disputed whether it makes sense to summarise East and South Franconian because both are different.
