Megleno-Romanian (vlășéște)

Megleno-Romanian is a Romance language spoken mainly in parts of Greece and the Republic of Macedonia by about 5,000 people. The Megleno-Romanian speakers, who call themselves Vlahi, live in a few villages in the Moglena region which is partly in the Greek region of Macedonia and partly in the Republic of Macedonia. There are also a number of speakers in Romania and Turkey.

Megleno-Romanian is similar to Romanian and Aromanian. It is considered by some as a dialect of Romanian or Aromanian. Others view it as a separate language in its own right.
