Kentish was a southern dialect of Old English spoken in the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Kent. It was one of four dialect-groups of Old English, the other three being Mercian, Northumbrian (known collectively as the Anglian dialects), and West Saxon.

The dialect was spoken in what is now the modern-day county of Kent, Surrey, southern Hampshire and the Isle of Wight by the Jutes.
