the inclusion of Viennese. Nobody considers that a separate language, does anyone? I'm sure _somebody_ does, but I wouldn't expect any linguist to consider it to be anything other than a regional variety of Austrian/Bavarian. (Whether they call Austrian/Bavarian a separate language or not depends on their philosophy, the phase of the moon and the price of tea in China.) But there's at least one well-indexed webpage on Viennese, so it probably hit the urban-legendary circuit the same way Yiklamu did. -- Mark
