Slevans would say it is a dialect of Slvanjek, Moravians would oppose. In fact, the situation is close to clash between Croats and Serbs, or Macedonians and Bulgars *here*. The Moravian National Institute in Ulimút (Olmyc) is free, according to Bohemian language law, to co-ordinate the Moravian language policy (although it looks it rather dictates). Officially, almost 400 000 Moravians were registered during last census (2000).
There are many newspapers issued in Moravian, magazines and radio/TV broadcasting. There is also writer famous all over BK (Zdenek Galuška needs translation, read it in Slvanjek ;) with his excellent series of satiric novels from East Moravia Slivania never pleads, Slivania ever pleads, Oncle Pagać relates (Slivania - a nickname for hilly region on the border of Moravia and Slevania especially known for Ta slivka, slivića - plum brandy).
Except for few grammatical and many lexicological differencies, Moravian also accepted, opposite to Slvanjek, diacritic orthography:
Slvanjek: cz sz zs lj nj dj
Moravian: ć ś ź ľ ň ď
