one of the major dialects of Old English
Jutlandic or Jutish is a term for the western dialects of Danish, spoken on the peninsula of Jutland. Generally, the eastern dialects are the closest to Standard Danish, while the southern dialect is the one that differs the most from the others, therefore it is sometimes described as a distinct dialect, thus Jutlandic is by that definition actually two different dialects: general Jutlandic and Southern Jutlandic. However, the linguistic variation is considerably more complicated and well over 20 separate minor dialects can be easily found on Jutland. This map shows 9 larger dialectal regions which will be discussed in this article. There are major phonological differences between the dialects, but also very noteworthy morphological, syntactic, and semantic variations. The different subdialects of Jutlandic differ somewhat from each other, and are generally grouped in three main dialects: southern Sønderjysk is often seen as very difficult for other speakers of Danish, even other Jysk dialects to understand. Instead of the normal Danish stød, it has tonal accents like Swedish. Many of the phonemes are also different, including velar fricatives much like in German.
