Berlin-Brandenburgish is a group of East Central German dialects spoken in the central and southern parts of Brandenburg as well as in Berlin (Berlinerisch dialect). It is not to be confused with the Low German Brandenburgisch dialect (Markish) still spoken in northern Brandenburg.

With the growth of Berlin the original East Low German Brandenburgish dialect has been strongly influenced by East Central German dialects, so that Berlin-Brandenburgish today is mostly classified as East Central German.
