Provençal {{#invoke:IPAc-en|main}}<ref>Laurie Bauer, 2007, The Linguistics Student’s Handbook, Edinburgh</ref> (Occitan: Provençau or Prouvençau{{#invoke:Category handler|main}} [pʀuveⁿˈsaw]) is a variety of Occitan spoken by a minority of people in southern France, mostly in Provence. In the English-speaking world, "Provençal" is often used to refer to all dialects of Occitan, but more properly it refers to the dialect spoken in Provence. However there is an important controversy about whether Provençal is an Occitan dialect or a particular language.

"Provençal" (with "Limousin") is also the customary name given to the older version of the langue d'oc used by the troubadours of medieval literature, while Old French or the langue d'oïl was limited to the northern areas of France.

In 2007, the ISO 639-3 code changed from prv to oci, as prv was merged into oci.
