Corsican language

Corsican (corsu) is a language and group of dialects spoken in the island of Corsica (France), and as a variety in the Gallura region of Sardinia (Italy).

Divided into Northern Corsican, spoken in the Bastia (Bastia), Corte (Corti) area, and Southern Corsican, spoken in Sartene (Sarté), Porto-Vecchio[?] (Porti-Vechju). The dialect of Ajaccio (Aiacciu) has been described as in transition.

In the Sardinian region of Gallura (Gaddura), including the town of Tempio Pausania (Tempiu), and on the island of La Maddalena (A Maddalena) the people speak "Gallurese", a transitional dialect with many similarities with Southern Corsican.
