Abstract: Dialect refers to regional variety of language with differences in vocabulary, grammar as well as pronunciation. Dialect therefore is a kind of variation that exists in the use of language from one part of the region to the other that shares the same language. A language without dialect is in the verge of extinction. Hausa language is very rich in terms of number of speakers that uses the language across the Hausaland and beyond. This makes the language to be a lingua franca and as such has various dialects. The Hausa scholars classified Hausa dialect into Western and Eastern dialects respectively. This paper therefore is aim at exploring the relevance of Hausa dialect in Hausa regional identity.The methodology to employed in carrying out the research is by careful observation of the use of dialects by the respective speakers of Hausa dialectical regions.
