Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lule Sami is a Uralic, Sami language spoken in Lule Lappmark, i.e., around Lule, Sweden and in the northern parts of Nordland county in Norway, especially Tysfjord municipality, where Lule Sami is an official language. It is written in the Latin alphabet, having an official orthography. With 1,500 to 2,000 speakers it is the second largest of all Sami languages. It is reported that the number of native speakers is in sharp decline among the younger generations. The language has, however, been standardised in 1983 and elaborately cultivated ever since.show more
