While the official language of Austria is Standard German (Hochdeutsch), most Austrians speak a certain dialect that is often referenced as "Austrian" and which is also used in state television and radio programs. Austria has numerous different dialects, mostly associated with certain regions ("Wienerisch", "Kärtnerisch", "Tirolerisch"). These dialects differ to the extent that many Austrians cannot understand speakers of other dialects. Besides German and its derivatives, some people speak "minority languages", for example, Slovenian (especially in Carinthia), Croatian and Hungarian (especially in Burgenland).
