A Silesian speaker, recorded in Poland

Silesian[a] or Upper Silesian is a West Slavic ethnolect of either the Lechitic group[2] or the Czech–Slovak group,[3] spoken by a small percentage of people in Silesia. Its vocabulary was significantly influenced by Central German due to the existence of numerous Silesian German speakers in the area prior to World War II and after.[5] Some regard it as one of the four major dialects of Polish,[6][7][8][9] while others classify it as a separate language, distinct from Polish.[10][11][12][13]
