Sicilian language

Sicilian (sicilianu; in Italian: Siciliano; also known as Siculo (siculu) or Calabro-Sicilian) is a Romance language spoken on the island of Sicily and its satellite islands. specifically in the province of Reggio Calabria, whose dialect is viewed as being part of the continuum of the Sicilian language. Central Calabria, the southern parts of Apulia, Salento (where it is known as Salentino), and Campania, on the Italian peninsula, where it is called Cilentano are viewed as being part of the broader Far Southern Italian language group (in Italian: Italiano meridionale estremo). Ethnologue (see below for more detail) describes Sicilian as being "distinct enough from Standard Italian to be considered a separate language" Sicilian has the oldest literary tradition of the modern Italian languages.

It is extremely hard, and near impossible to find a Sicilian dictionary, as many do not consider it a language but a dialect of Italian.
