        Germany, -- comprising Old High German, used from the 8th
        to the 11th century; Middle H. G., from the 12th to the
        15th century; and Modern or New H. G., the language of
        Luther's Bible version and of modern German literature.
        The dialects of Central Germany, the basis of the modern
        literary language, are often called Middle German, and the
        Southern German dialects Upper German; but High German is
        also used to cover both groups.
