What is dialectism?

You have probably heard more than once a term called "dialectism." What is dialectism?

Dialectism is a word that was borrowed from local dialects. Dialectisms are phonetic, lexical, ethnographic. Examples of dialectisms: "buryak" (beet), "kochet" (rooster), "doork" (bell), "koshevka" (basket), "thousand" (godfather of the cross).

If dialectism is a separate word, then dialects are whole dialects. Each locality and nation has its own talk, it is determined by the territory in which people live. Dialects exist not only in the mighty Russian, but also on the territory of other states.

You should not be surprised at the appearance of dialectisms and dialects. Each city is distinguished not only by its location, but also by traditions and peculiarities, including linguistic ones.
