  Lombardic language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Lombardic or Langobardic is the extinct language of the Lombards (Langobardi), the Germanic speaking settlers in Italy in the 6th century.
This is based the evidence that Lombardic participated in, and indeed shows some of the earliest evidence for the High German consonant shift.
The classification of Lombardic within the Germanic languages may be complicated by issues of orthography.

Lombards were one of the tribes forming the Suebi, and during the 1st century AD they lived in northwest Germany.
At the end of the 5th century Lombards settled in the area of what is now Austria, in the territory formerly occupied by the Rugians, and at the beginning of the 6th century they were settled in Pannonia (now Western Hungary and the Czech Republic) by the Emperor Justinian, in quality of foederati.
According to the Lombards themselves, a legend documented by Paul the Deacon, their name was derived from a joke played on Odin (Godan) by his wife Frige (Frea).

Pronunciation of Italian is easy, since every word is spoken exactly as it is written and usually enunciated with exaggerated, open-mouthed clarity.

Bowers’ History of the Popes (1750: vol 2, p 444) states "from that year, the year 570, historians date the beginning of the Lombards in that country." So according to the Cardinal, AD 570 was the turning point.
