    • 2017, John C. Swanson, Tangible Belonging: Negotiating Germanness in Twentieth-Century Hungary (University of Pittsburgh Press, ISBN 9780822981992):
      Yet there still remained non-Magyar speakers in the country. Germans, representing around 7 percent of the total population (approximately half a million individuals), were the largest non-Magyar group after the departure of the Romanians and Slovaks. These Germans were essentially the so-called Swabians who had arrived in the eighteenth century. (The Transylvanian Saxons were now in Romania, the Zipser Germans in Czechoslovakia, and the Swabians of the Banat were divided between Romania and Yugoslavia.)
