# ACROLECTAL #
An acrolect is a register of a spoken language that is considered formal and high style.
# MESOLECTAL #
A mesolect is term referring to a register or range of registers of spoken language whose character falls somewhere between the prestige of the acrolect and the informality of the basilect.

In linguistics, a basilect is a dialect of speech that has diverged considerably from an acrolect or standard educated variety of language. A basilect and acrolect in which it originated may eventually reach mutual unintelligibility.
