Ohrid dialect
The location of the Ohrid dialect among the others Macedonian dialects

The Ohrid dialect (Macedonian: Охридски дијалект, Ohridski dijalekt) is a member of the western and north western subgroup of the western group of dialects of the Macedonian language. The dialect is spoken in the region around the city Ohrid up to the southern point of the Ohrid Lake. Except in the city of Ohrid, the dialect is spoken in the villages Trpejca, Peštani, Elešec and many others smaller villages in that area. This dialect is known among the Macedonians as a dialect of excessive use of the suffix -t and in some extend shortening of the words. The Ohrid dialect is also part of the Macedonian literature, especially with the works of Grigor Prličev with his Biography, Skenderbeg and Serdarot. [1] [2]The Ohrid dialect is closely related with the Struga and Upper Prespa dialects.
