Dialects
 


Between 6 and 9 Basque dialects are distinguished, the boundaries of which do not coincide directly with current political or administrative boundaries.

One of the first scientific studies of Basque dialects, regarding the auxiliary verb forms, was made by Louis-Lucien Bonaparte, a nephew of Napoleon. His original dialect map was regarded as the authoritative guide for centuries.




 
The dialects of Basque



     Biscayan

     Gipuzkoan

     Western Upper Navarrese

     Eastern Upper Navarrese

     Lapurdian and Lower Navarrese

     Souletin



Most recently though, Koldo Zuazo, Professor of Basque Philology at the University of the Basque Country has redefined the dialect classifications slightly, amongst other things grouping Lapurdian with Lower Navarrese and distinguishing Easter and Western Upper Navarrese and recognising several mixed areas:



Biscayan

Gipuzkoan

Western Upper Navarrese
 
Eastern Upper Navarrese (including Baztanese, Aezcoan, Salazarese and the extinct Roncalese)

Lapurdian and Lower Navarrese

Souletin



The names for the language in the dialects of Basque (Euskara in Standard Basque) for example are highly divergent and to some degree exemplify the dialectal fragmentation of the Basque speaking area. The most divergent forms are generally found in the Eastern dialects.
