Latvian Dialects

Postby Cesare M. » 2013-06-12, 22:56

I am not sure if there is already a thread about this, and I am not studying Latvian at the moment (although I might consider going back to studying it more often next year), but I was just wondering if any of you who can speak a Latvian dialect, apart from Standard Latvian, can explain in detail in this thread all the important differences from what you know at the moment between your dialect and the standard one.

I am just very curious to know. Thanks.

What do you mean by dialect? There is basically one dialect called "Latgalian", which is quite difficult to understand for basic Latvian :D

Ok and how does the "basic Latvian dialect" differ from the standard one?

I'm sure it was meant to be the standard one
