The local speech of Črešnjevci belongs to the Eastern Slovenske Gorice dialect and with it to the Panonic group of dialects. Typical of it are loss of tonemic oppositions and preservation of the quantitative opposition between the old long circumflexed and acute vowels. The vowel system contains the long stressed i:, u:, e:, o:,e:i, o:u, a:, the short stressed i, ü, u, e, o, e, å, and unstressed vowels. The consonats system differs from that of the standard language only in some individual developments: l' > l, -ł > u/-ja in streesed syllables, otherwise into -a; -m > -n; n' > n/j; the complexes črě- and žrě-; tl, dl, > kl, gl; dn > gn; šč > š; sk > šk-. Neutral gender nouns in the dual and plural behave as if they were either masculin or feminin. Among adjectival forms, definite form prevails also indenifinite meanings.
