Megleno-Romanian is a Romance language spoken mainly in parts of Greece and the Republic of Macedonia by about 5,000 people. The Megleno-Romanian speakers, who call themselves Vlahi, live in a few villages in the Moglena region which is partly in the Greek region of Macedonia and partly in the Republic of Macedonia. There are also a number of speakers in Romania and Turkey.
Megleno-Romanian is similar to Romanian and Aromanian and considered by some as a dialect of Romanian, or a dialect of Aromanian, or as a separate language. It is most similar to Romanian, with much influence from neighbouring South Slavic languages.

Ạń am un ại̯or plin di cal’ al’bi. Saldi un roș ăn mejluc tucu ạl’ clutsăi̯aști.
I have a stable full of white horses. Only one red in the middle who kicks all.
