Since my last poll was on Romance languages, we'll go with Germanic languages next. I added on a few more local and minor languages (Frisian, Low German, Yiddish, etc.) in this poll, since they tend to be smaller in number compared to Romance languages and thus can fit on a single poll. Doing that with the Romance language poll would have meant Aragonese, Picard, Lombard, Aromanian, Friulian, Ladino, Ladin, Bolognese, Neapolitan, Venetian, Sardinian, Umbrian, Milanese....(runs out of breath and still not even close to done).
Some Germanic languages have been left out in this poll but it encompasses most of the language family. The question this time is also about personal preference, so ignore economic clout, "usefulness", population, and anything else. Simply choose the one(s) you like the best based on which you enjoy reading, listening to, writing in, having around you.
The last poll ended up being pretty close to the online population of the Romance languages available to be chosen, so it'll be interesting to see how it works out this time.
