Swabian (Schwäbisch ) is one of the dialect groups of Alemannic German that belong to the High German dialect continuum.

- Swabian German

This territory would include all of the Alemannic German area, but the modern concept of Swabia is more restricted, due to the collapse of the duchy of Swabia in the thirteenth century.

- Swabia

Germany: centre and south of Baden-Württemberg, Swabia, and certain districts of Bavaria

- Alemannic German
