Seto (seto kiil´;[2] Estonian: setu keel) is a dialect of Estonian or a separate language spoken by 12,549 people.[1] It is sometimes identified as a dialect of Võro, or the two are described as one language, Võro-Seto. Setos (setokõsõq) mostly inhabit the area near Estonia's southeastern border with Russia in Setomaa, and are primarily Eastern Orthodox, while Võros (võrokõsõq) are traditionally Lutherans and live in historical Võru County.
