 Curonian language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Traditionally Curonian refers to an extinct language that was spoken by Curonians mainly in Courland peninsula, Western Latvia, and along the nearby Baltic shores.
The language disappeared by the 17th century, leaving substrata in Western dialects of Latvian and Lithuanian languages.
Their language was heavily influenced by Lithuanian and German respectively, and by the end of 18th century new Curonian dialects had formed, with the dialect of the Curonian Spit being notably distinct, due to its isolation from the mainland.
