I have just finished a degree in German, and I am fairly certain that it

speak High German, but I cannot understand Bayuvarisch or Alemanisch,

I have a Dutch friend that I could ask, although I can tell you that
Danish and Dutch are both similar to German, and the Scandinavian
languages are similar to a lesser degree.
If you could tell me what, apart from the sound of the word, influenced
you to think it is German, I might be able to assist better.

It could easily be Yiddish, which borrows heavily from German.
