Lithuanian has two dialects: Aukštaitian, Highland Lithuanian, from which Standard Lithuanian is derived and Samogitian, Lowland Lithuanian, formed under the influence of the today extinct Curonian language. There are significant differences between Standard Lithuanian and the Samogitian dialect. More precisely, Standard Lithuanian has derived from Aukštaitian dialects, including the dialect of Prussian Lithuania (Lithuania Minor).
