The Swedish language – characteristics and spread

Swedish is a Scandinavian language, and the official language of Sweden and some parts of Finland. Swedish is spoken as a native language by about 8.5 million people, of whom around 8.0 million live in Sweden together with just under 290,000 in the Finland-Swedish minority constituting 5.5% of the Finnish population.

Finland’s Uusimaa (Nyland) and Itä-Uusimaa (Öster-Nyland) regions have predominantly Swedish-speaking communities, and Pohjanmaa (Ostrobothnia) has predominantly Swedish-speaking as well as several monolingual Swedish communities. Swedish-speaking school children in the monolingual Swedish and bilingual communities are taught in their native language. Swedish is a compulsory foreign language for Finnish-speaking children. Turku has the only university in Finland to use Swedish only, Åbo Akademi.

To a certain extent, today’s Scandinavian written languages are closer together than the spoken dialects within one particular Scandinavian country, but there are also distinctive language characteristics in Danish, Swedish, and Norwegian. The dialect boundaries between languages are gradual rather than sharp with around 85–90% similarity in vocabulary between Danish and Swedish.
