The intensive study of the dialect vocabulary of Byelorussian and Bulgarian is connected with the problem of the lexical relations between the two languages. Linguogeography is of primary importance in establishing the lexical parallels between the two languages; it offers accurate ant possible ways of reconstructing hypothetical past relations. In the course of time these relations have been obscured by numerous language phenomena during the historical development of the two languages in conformity with their specific linguistic, cultural, historical and geographical context. A number of lexemes (most of which definitely belong to a given dialect) exhibit a complete structural and semantic similarity.
