The Prussian Language (short: pru) is part of the Germanic language family inside the Indo-European Languages.

Prussian is a pretty big language. Sadly, only Prussian citizens can actually speak Prussian, outside Prussia there was little amount of speakers, except for the province of Bromberg at the border.

The Prussian language is put into 3 different lines: High-German (used for official documents), Standardized Prussian (used for general documents like newspapers and co.) and unstandardized Prussian dialects around Prussia (used for only familiar speaking).

This is the whole Prussian Alphabet, without phonetics:

a , b , c , d , e , f , g , h , i , j , k , l , m , n , p , q , r , s , t , u , v , w , x , z , ä , ö , ü , š , ŝ , ž

As for how you speak them, the first 29 are the same as in the German Language. Then, the š is spoken out "sh", the ŝ "sp" (Like in German), and the ž "tz" or "zt" (depends on the word, like in German).
