The Masurian ethnolect (Masurian: Mazurská gádkä), according to some linguists, is a dia­lect group of the Polish language; others consider Masurian to be a separate language, spoken by Masurians in a part of East Prussia that is now in Poland. The language is almost extinct as a consequence of historical developments in the region in the past 100 years. However, since 2015, some initiatives started to promote the Masurian language, schools are organizing competitions of Masurian and people started to promote Masurian using social media. In 2016, the Masurian Union was founded to promote the Masurian language and culture. Meanwhile, some activists have also started a process of linguistical normaliza­tion to promote and save the ethnolect.
