Some Issues in the Study of Language Shift in the Northern Calotte.
Aikio, Marjut
Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, v7 n5 p361-78 1986
Language use among linguistic minorities of the Northern Calotte (areas of Norway, Sweden, and Finland that lie above the Arctic Circle) is reviewed from the perspective of history and ecology of language. Two case studies examining language shift in these areas, where Norwegian, Swedish, Finnish, and Sami are spoken, are also considered. (Author/CB)
