Meänkieli


Meänkieli
A language spoken by some 40,000–70,000 people mainly in Northern Sweden. It is a variant of Finnish with a structure and grammar similar to Finnish, but the vocabulary considerably influenced by Swedish.

The County Board of Education worked out simple textbooks in Meänkieli and started to promote the vernacular in mother tongue instruction (henceforth MTI). Meänkieli was perceived as a bridge between Swedish and St Fi. - p. 242, Language Planning and Policy in Europe by Robert B. Kaplan, Richard B. Baldauf, 2006 - ISBN 1853598119.
