When someone speaks in their dialect, this is often referred to as  "plate-German ." This mentions that it is a particularly low language level. Today's High German was also a dialect in its origin. The dialect from East Central German, Luther's mother tongue, grew. He spread his writings and Bible translations throughout the country. Preachers, scholars, educated and poets disseminated Luther's works, so that the German high language was eventually developed.
