Note: Usage by country - Home Speakers: All of the Italian administrative Region Emilia-Romagna except for the area which speaks Rumagn˘l; parts of the neighbouring Regions Lombardia and Toscana, a small part of Veneto. History - It belongs to the Indo-European family, Romance group and is intelligible to a potential group ofá4 000 000 people, to which one can add the 400 000 who understand Rumagn˘l, the dialect of Romagna : actually EmigliÓn and Rumagn˘l, called in Italian "emiliano" and "romagnolo", form a single group of closely related dialects, whose characteristics are quite different from the Italian literary language normally used in official documents. The Ethnologue says: "A structurally separate language from Italian". Bulgnais (called "bolognese" in Italian), is the EmigliÓn dialect spoken in the capital city of Emilia-Romagna. Its mainly characteristics (typical diphtongs, lack of double consonants, large use of pronouns, a simplified verbal conjugation on the French model and a large part of its vocabulary) are largely shared by all EmigliÓn dialects.
