De Lüttje Prinz — in East Frisian language spoken in Niedersachsen.

East Frisian, also known as East Frisian Low German (Ostfriesisches Platt), is a Low German dialect spoken in the East Frisia region of Lower Saxony (Niedersachsen) in northern Germany. It is one of several Frisian dialects spoken in the Frisian Islands and coastal areas along the North Sea coast. East Frisian has a distinct linguistic and cultural identity within the broader Low German language family.

East Frisian is primarily spoken in East Frisia, a historical region in Lower Saxony, Germany. It includes areas along the North Sea coast, including the East Frisian Islands (such as Borkum, Norderney, and Langeoog) and the mainland regions of East Frisia. East Frisian is a dialect of Low German, which is a West Germanic language. Low German is spoken in various regions of Northern Germany and the Netherlands and has several regional varieties.

East Frisia has a historical connection to the Frisian language and culture. While East Frisian is a Low German dialect, it has been influenced by Frisian, particularly in its vocabulary and phonology. East Frisian itself has several sub-dialects and varieties, each associated with specific towns, islands, or regions within East Frisia. These varieties may have distinct pronunciation, vocabulary, and grammatical features. Like other Low German dialects, this language exhibits phonological and grammatical differences from Standard German. It often includes features such as distinct vowel sounds, grammatical gender, and word order variations.
