East Pomeranian (Ostpommersch) is an East Low German dialect that is or used to be spoken in Northern Poland (previously part of Germany until the end of World War II). It is part of the Pommersch (Pomeranian) dialect group.

The name Pomerania comes from Slavic po more, which means Land at the Sea.[2]

East Pomeranian was mostly spoken in the Farther Pomerania (Hinterpommern) region of the Prussian Province of Pomerania and in Pomerelia. After World War II, the East Pomeranian-speaking German inhabitants of the region were largely expelled to western Germany.

East Pomeranian is also spoken in Brazil.

The varieties of East Pomeranian are:

  • Westhinterpommersch
  • Osthinterpommersch
  • Bublitzisch
  • Pommerellisch
