East Franconian (German: Ostfränkisch), usually referred to as Franconian (Fränkisch) in German, is a dialect which is spoken in Franconia, the northern part of the federal state of Bavaria and other areas in Germany around Nuremberg, Bamberg, Coburg, Würzburg, Hof, Bayreuth, Meiningen, Bad Mergentheim, and Crailsheim.
Franconia (German: Franken; Bavarian: Frankn, Franggn) is a region in Germany, characterised by its culture and language, and may be roughly associated with the areas in which the East Franconian dialect group, colloquially referred to as "Franconian" (German: "Fränkisch"), is spoken.
The Franconian languages are considered dialects of German and Dutch even though often termed languages. The dialects are further subdivided into ranges under a common name, which may also be subdivided; for example, Flemish is a dialect of Dutch. It is further divided into East and West Flemish. Not all dialects of Dutch and German are Franconian.
(en: The East-Middle German dialects contain the Thuringian, the Upper Saxon,... the South Franconian, the East Franconian (or Main Franconian), the Bavarian...). The probably wrong distinction of a few East Franconian German dialects as a so called Main Franconian Group does not fit with the already mentioned Handwörterbuch von Bayerisch-Franken.
