  1. While visiting Vienna I couldn't make out what people were saying, it sounded so different than RTL Deutsch.   However lately I've been reading lots of Austrian websites & while they're in Standard Deutsch, it seems they use shorter phrases and less compound nouns than DE sites (even Bavarian ones).   Is it only me or are the Austrian people more likely to use shorter phrases and less compound nouns? Shorter legal terms, too (Meldezettel vs Meldebestätigung). Less -gung terms anyway! They even seem to use more Latin-derived words & even some Slavic. Is Austrian German easier to learn to read?
