Samogitian (žemaitiu ruoda, žemaitiu kalba, or žemaitiu rokundais) is spoken in the Samogitian region of Lithuania. The language, which is considered a dialect by Lithuanian linguists, is closely related to Standard Lithuanian.

(Southern dialect)
Donininkai
(Western dialect)
"bread" douna dūna dona
"milk" pėins pīns pėns
