Language Contact Research in Northern Scandinavia.
Ureland, Sture
Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, v8 n1-2 p43-73 1987
Summarizes contact-linguistic research on the Samis and Finns, the northernmost minorities in Scandinavia. The monolingual view of northern Scandinavian languages in the past is complemented with a multilingual perspective of the interaction between minority and larger languages. Among contact patterns discussed are North Germanic-Sami, Finnish-Sami Norwegian-Russian-Sami-Finnish-Swedish (a pidgin), and an international trade jargon. (Author/CB)
