<human language> \j*r'mn\ A human language written (in latin alphabet)
and spoken in Germany, Austria and parts of Switzerland.
German writing normally uses four non-ASCII characters: "äöüß", the first three
have "umlauts" (two dots over the top): A O and U and the last is a double-S
("scharfes S") which looks like the Greek letter beta (except in capitalised
words where it should be written "SS"). These can be written in ASCII in several
ways, the most common are ae, oe ue AE OE UE ss or sz and the TeX versions "a "o
"u "A "O "U "s.
