Any other relevant information:
Resian is a Slovene dialect spoken by about 1025 persons in the Resia and Uccea
valleys (Udine province, Italy), and by an unknown number of emigrants living
scattered through Europe. In written texts the Latin script is used, 
but authors
avail themselves of widely varying orthographies and sets of characters. The
oldest such text dates from the 18th century. The spoken language shows
considerable geographical variation. See http://purl.org/resianica/
