The system of dialects of the Latvian language has developed under the influence of various extra-linguistic factors: in the parishes subordinated to the manors, the territorial restriction and the lack of mutual contacts led also to linguistic isolation and consequently to the development of different sub-dialects. It has been largely conditioned by economic and political circumstances. The sociolinguisti ay be I will be given the link just tomorrow in the morningc situation of Latvia’s south-eastern sub-dialects has been affected by numerous administrative-territorial reforms, but it has been particularly affected by the migration of the population. Contacts of the Baltic and the Slavic languages, as well as the mixed national composition have long been stable components of these sub-dialects. The aim of the present paper is to describe and analyse the sociolinguistic and ethno-linguistic situation in the Selonian sub-dialects in south-eastern Latvia. Particular attention is paid to migration processes, language contacts, as well as the sources that allow considering linguistic changes in the area during a certain period of time.
