For questions about a form of a language that is spoken in a particular part of a country or by a particular group of people .

The term dialect is used in two ways:

  1. To refer to a variety of a language that is a characteristic of a particular group of the language's speakers.
  2. To refer to a language that is socially subordinated to a regional standard language.

A language is a dialect with an army and navy. -Max Weinreich
