What is the language in Liechtenstein?

Liechtenstein is Europe’s fourth-smallest country, nestled in between the adjacent mountain ranges of Austria and Switzerland. With less than 40,000 inhabitants, Liechtenstein is undoubtedly just like a large city, operating as a separate country. But what is the language of Liechtenstein? How to the Liechtenstein people communicate? And, is it even worth it to develop a new vocabulary, for these few residents? To no one’s surprise, as Liechtenstein is situated right in between Austria and Switzerland, with Germany not too far, the official language is German. Or at least something that sounds like it 😉 Most people speak the Alemannic dialect of German that is slightly different from Standard German but closely related to dialects spoken in neighbouring regions such as Switzerland and Vorarlberg. Swiss-German is also spoken by most Liechtensteiners, as well as English, of course.
