Cremonese (Cremunés) is a dialect of Western Lombard language group spoken in the city and province of Cremona in Lombardy, Italy (with the exception of Crema and the area of Soresina, where an Eastern Lombard dialect is spoken, and the area of Casalmaggiore, where is spoken Emiliano-Romagnolo).

It has some elements from Emilian language, so that it's considered by someone to be a dialect of this language. If accepted as a Western Lombard, also because of its location in Lombardy and not in Emilia-Romagna, it belongs to the Southwestern Lombard group of dialects.
