A survey is made of the studies on the Bulgarian dialects of Aegean Thrace and Asia Minor which constitute the southernmost outlying parts of the Bulgarian and Slavonic ethnolinguistic area. In terms of their history, structure and typology, these dialects belong to the Rupski dialect group of Bulgarian and are related to the dialects of Aegean Macedonia, the Rhodope area, the Thracian valley and the regions of the Strandzha and Sakar mountains in South-eastern Bulgaria. The study of these dialects is connected with the names of Bulgarian linguists of the old and new generations: St. Mladenov, Hr. Kodov, T. Bojadžiev, etc.
