West Pomeranian (German: Westpommersch or Vorpommersch) is a dialect of the East Low German language and thus of the Low German language. It is spoken today in West Pomerania (Vorpommern) in northeast Germany. Towards the west of the region it transitions gradually into Mecklenburgisch which, like West Pomeranian, belongs to the Mecklenburgisch-Vorpommersch dialect. Towards the south it mixes with Brandenburgisch. West Pomeranian has several West Slavic influences. Characteristic is a hard, terse speech.

The vocabulary of the West Pomeranian dialects is compiled and described in the Pomeranian Dictionary, Pommersches W├Ârterbuch.
