  Pannonian

The Pannonian dialect group (panonska narečna skupina), or northeastern dialect group, is a group of closely related dialects of Slovene. The Pannonian dialects are spoken in northeastern Slovenia (Prekmurje, in the eastern areas of Slovenian Styria), and among the Hungarian Slovenes.

Phonological and morphological characteristics[edit]

Among other features, this group is characterized by loss of pitch accent, non-lengthened short syllables, and a new acute on short syllables.[1]

Individual dialects and subdialects[edit]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ According to some researchers, the Prekmurje dialect is a regional literary language because it has a standardized grammar, a long history of separated development and a large number of written sources.[3] However, this view is disputed.[4]
