Swiss-German A) is NOT a language

It is a language. It is one of the official ones of Switzerland, meaning it is internationall recognized, making it an official language. Though it does have many dialects.

I know it's not a language and "Swiss-German" is only an "Überbegriff" for all the different dialects in Switzerland  Smile. Now to answer your question NO  Wink
