  (8): Mecklenburgisch-Vorpommersch

Mecklenburgisch-Vorpommersch is a Low German dialect spoken in the German state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. It belongs to the East Low German group.

In the western parts of the language area it is similar to some Low Saxon dialects, while the eastern parts are influenced by the Pomeranian (Pommersch) language. It differs slightly from East Pomeranian, which used to be spoken widely in the nowadays Polish part of Farther Pomerania and included much more Slavic Pomeranian and Kashubian influence.

The name Pomerania comes from Slavic po more, which means Land at the Sea.[1]
