From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Lach dialects (Czech: lašská nářečí, Polish: gwary laskie, not to be confused with the Lechitic language group) is a group of Silesian dialects. It is a hybrid or mixed language of the West Slavic languages.

Lach dialects are spoken in parts of Czech Silesia, the Hlučínsko region and northeastern Moravia.[1] It is also spoken in some adjacent villages in Poland.[2] Most Czech researchers consider Lach to be a dialect of the Czech language, whilst Polish dialectologists tend to furnish Lach with Polish origins.[3]

Poet Óndra Łysohorsky is probably the most known writer who wrote in Lach dialect.
