ABOUT THE LANGUAGE Swedish courses in Portland
Swedish has evolved into a very standard language without a lot of variation; based primarily on the version of the language that came to be spoken in Stockholm. This is today still known as Stockholm Swedish to the Swedish people.
There are relatively few dialects, but they do exist: Orsa and Narpes. What’s remarkable about these dialects is that in direct contrast to the situation of Danish, Norwegian, and Swedish; so these dialects are usually not mutually intelligible. As a result, Orsa and Narpes speakers in Sweden usually also speak Stockholm Swedish.
What’s known today as Modern Swedish began as a distinct period in the late 19th century; when the printing press and the resurgence of a sense of national identity combined to raise awareness and affection for the Swedish language in Sweden and elsewhere. It was during this period that a Swedish literary renaissance of sorts; led by figures such as August Strindberg, helped to standardise the language’s grammar and vocabulary.
Today, Swedish is a stable, modern language that has plenty of rewards for anyone who wishes to expand their linguistic horizons. Talk and Chalk
