Digor (dialect)


Digor (dialect)

Digorian is a dialect of the Ossetian language. The other is Iron, which is more widely-spoken.

The differences between the two are large enough to call them two languages—and that is done in some sources like the recently published Digor-Russian dictionary by Fedar Takazov (the compiler himself writes "Digor language", while the editor writes in the same book "Digor dialect").
