The language is not known in many places in the world. Most of the speakers reside in Serbia and Bulgaria. Volrusian has 2 scripts, the Russian Cyrillic script and its own unique Cyrillic script. For most speakers Volrusian is their second language. Volrusian is one of the easiest Slavic languages to learn because it does not have the Accusative, Dativ, General, etc. forms. It has similar words from the Serbian language and some of its own words. Volrusian is said to be spoken as far as 1800.[2]

Different Volrusian Dialects[edit]

There are are 4 different Volrusian dialects, Moldavian, Amerissian North, Amerissian South, and Serovakian. The differences are in how they are influenced by different languages. Moldavian is more influenced by Romanian, Amerissian North is heavily influenced by the Russian language, Amerissian South is influenced by Persian, and Serovakian is influenced by Slovakian. Even though they are influenced by different languages, speakers of the different dialects can still understand each other. The Amerissian South dialect has under 100 speakers and is estimated to die out in 10-15 years. The reasons why the Volrusian languages are dying out is because most people that spoke it started speaking Serbian, Slovak, or Russian instead of Volrusian.
