Veluws is a Dutch Low Saxon dialect which is spoken on the Veluwe. Veluws is usually divided into two main dialects, West-Veluws (West Veluws) and Oost-Veluws (East Veluws), these two dialects are reasonably similar but differ in grammar. For example: in Oost-Veluws they say "ie warkt/wärkt" (you are working) and in West-Veluws "jie warken/waarken" (you are working).

West-Veluws is also more influenced by Dutch. The closer you get to the border with Oost-Veluws, the more the dialects differ from Standard Dutch. For example in the central part where West-Veluws is spoken they say "hie staot", in the North Western part they say "hij steet" compared to "hij/hee stiet" (he is standing) in Oost-Veluws, this already has a more Low Saxon influence. Hattem, the North Eastern part where Oost-Veluws is spoken has a heavy Sallandic influence.
