A short history of the Finnish language
Finnish is a Finnic language, like that of Estonia. It is spoken by around 5 million people in Finland, Sweden, Norway, Canada and Russia. It is a popular second language in Estonia. Many of the Finnish people also speak some English.
There are two official languages in Finland; Finnish and Swedish. Up until 1809 Finland was in fact part of Sweden and the official language was Swedish. However, after 1863 authorities were able to use the Finnish language and it was finally made an official language in 1892. Finland is officially bilingual with Sweden.
Finnish writing was first created in the 16th century and was based on German, Latin and Swedish. Before this time the Finnish language was only oral. It was improved in the 19th century and the first novel written by a Finnish speaker, in Finnish was called Seven Brothers, published in 1870.
The Finnish language has a large number of dialects, including the Savonian dialect, which is spoken by the people in northern and southern Savonia and Eastern Finland. The other dialects are spoken by the people of Western Finland. They can be understood by each other as they have only minor language changes.
