Top 10 Best Sounding Germanic Languages

The Top Ten

1 Swedish

Swedish is not beautiful. Swedish has geminated vowels, and when somebody pronounces a word with gemination in Swedish, they sound like they're retarded, or their speech is lagging as a sequel from a brain stroke. Geminations don't work with Germanic languages, which tend to have tons of consonant clusters. Lengthened vowels (Gemination) + Consonant cluster: big NO NO!
Compare the geminations in a more melodic, clusterless language like Japanese, and then in Swedish, and you'll see what I'm talking about.

Swedish is the most beautiful language I've ever heard, French and Danish are close honorable mentions!

I'm learning Swedish right now and I love it. The language is so clearly structured, yet it flows beautifully when spoken.

When being spoken it sounds very song-like, very melodic, with high tones and low tones. Beautiful.

2 Norwegian

Sounds like a Swedish with a Happy tone

Norwegian should be number 1. It's way better than Swedish.

Seriously, Norwegian sounds better than German!

Sounds like Swedish but not as stupid

3 German

German sure has some of the best songs there, the language was meant to be sung.

German is the most beautiful sounding language I have ever learned. ( I can speak German, Italian, Spanish, English, Turkish, Mandarin Chinese, Russian, Korean, Greek and Danish fluently ), yes not too much it is enough for me.

I like it for it's formality. I picture an accomplished scientist or author when I hear it.

Of course German is the best sounding Germanic language duh

4 English

English sounds nothing like German, thank goodness. There's no such thing as Australian, American and British English - they're ALL English but Australian, American and English, Welsh, Scottish and Irish ->i.e. British, all have different accents.

Whats with the us flag English comes from england!

There's Australian, American and British English. For some reason I speak a bit of all.
Favourite odor is nonsense. - BorisRule

Greatest language in the world

5 Icelandic

Pleasurable to listen to

Icelandic is bootiful ;OOO

Such a beautiful and under-appreciated language. So sad how such few people know about it. Lengi lifi ├Źsland!

6 Dutch

The language sounds way different than the other Germanic languages, it's just so unique, nice, warm and "gezellig". They say Dutch has the richest vocabulary in the world. I use it as a argument against people who say my language is ugly both spoken and written. If you don't like how the sentence sounds, just use another word with the same meaning which does sound nice. The sentence can also look more appealing to the eye after you replaced a word. Sorry if my post is a bit messy, I'm not always good at explaining my opinion.

Danish sounds very nice, but it's very hard to pronounce.
