Description In the introductory part of the contribution a summary of localities is stated. In these localities an exploration with the dialectal speakers has been made. The authenticity of dialectal material is documented by dialects from the area of southwest Hřebečsko. The traced sound characteristics, which are unlike the results of historical researches completed in the first half of 20th century recorded also on tapes, confirm stability and conservativeness of dialects in language islands not influenced by contemporary German and minimally with Czech language environment, mostly at the syntactic level. This dialectal stability, which is confirmed both with historical and also present research, can be according to the author's opinion used also from the interdiscipline point of view. For example, there are rumours in the area in the area of research of New uppergerman office texts that dialectal elements are penetrating the usage of local offices. If we compare the notices of city book in Moravská Třebová with the dialects spoken in this area, we come to conclusion that in written form there appear only some features of city talk, however, it has higher status and other sound character than country dialect in the nearest surroundings. On the other hand, it is also possible to support or contest the probability of interpretation of phonetic realizations of different graphematic alternations of Middleupper German graphems ie, uo, üe with taking into account the state of phonetics in parallel dialectal figures. In conclusion, the author of the contribution reminds that large amount of obtained dialectal materials enable detailed classification of materials also in the morphological level. As an example, he states dialectal richness and diversity of plural substantiv realizations in contrast with contemporary German.
