Padar Nostar

Padar nostar ca ts in cel,
cal sia santific al Tu nom,
cal vegna al Tu regn,
cla vegna fata la Tu volont in cel com in tra.

Ds inc al nostar pan qutidian,
e armt a nultar i nostar debit,
is com nualtar li armetm ai nostar debitr
e non indras in tentasin,
ma rendas libar dal mal.
Is al sia.

Note: Usage by country - Home Speakers: All of the Italian administrative Region Emilia-Romagna except for the area which speaks Rumagnl; 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 of4 000 000 people, to which one can add the 400 000 who understand Rumagnl, the dialect of Romagna : actually Emiglin and Rumagnl, 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 situations. The Ethnologue says: "A structurally separate language from Italian". Bulgnais (called "bolognese" in Italian), is the Emiglin 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 Emiglin dialects.
