Kičevo-Poreče dialect

The Kičevo-Poreče dialect ( _mk. Кичевско-поречки дијалект, "Kičevo-porečki dijalekt") is a member of the central subgroup of the western group of dialects of the Macedonian language. The dialect is spoken in a vast area in the Republic of Macedonia and mainly in the cities Kičevo and Makedonski Brod. It is also native to the villages of the region Porečje, such as Samokov and those around Kičevo. Because of the migration of the population from Porečje, the dialect is spoken in the region of Polog and in the capital Skopje.
