Language information: The direct descendant of Old Saxon, Low Saxon—usually, with the inclusion of Low Franconian varieties, known as “Low German” (Niederdeutsch, Plattdeutsch) in Germany—is originally used in the eastern parts of the Netherlands and in the northern parts of Germany.
Furthermore, it exerted strong influences on languages of the Baltic coast, especially on Eastern Pomeranian (Kashubian, a Slavonic language of Northern Poland) and on Estonian (a Finnic language).
Due to a lack of general standards and thus a lack of cohesion, the language community is very much fragmented, and most speakers care more about their own dialects than about the language as a whole.
