I know what is written in Wikipedia. Languages are classified by level of mutual intelligibility, not by random grouping.

Definition of dialect according to Oxford Dictionary:


    [li]

The form of a language that is spoken in one area with grammar, words and pronunciation that may be different from other forms of the same language[/li]

Could you understand this?

Of course not, I don't speak the dialect. I speak English fluently yet I can't understand the Cockney English dialect, even though it's a dialect of English. I don't know how fluent you are in English, but can you understand this?


    [li]
