From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Burgundian language is an extinct East Germanic language, spoken by the Burgundians in southeastern Gaul as late as the 6th century AD.

Little is known of the language. Some proper names of Burgundians are recorded, and some dialect words used in the area in modern times appear to be derived from the ancient Burgundian language, but it is often difficult to distinguish these from Germanic words of other origin, and in any case the modern form of the words is rarely suitable to infer much about the old language. There is much speculation on the impact Germanic Burgundian had on modern arpitan dialects of Burgundy after the French kingdom absorbed the province.
