Frisian is a language spoken by a small ethnic group living in the northwestern part of Europe. In origin, the Frisian language is Germanic, the ancient Frisian community figuring prominantly in North European history. They were especially noted as traders and raiders during viking times. Frisian is distinct from East Frisian Low Saxon.
Frisian consists of several dialects, which are very often mutually unintelligible. At their most basic, there are 3 dialectal divisions, West Lauwers Frisian "Frysk," Saterland Frisian "Seeltersk," and North Frisian. The North Frisian language is however, further segmented into several additional strongly unique speech forms.
The northern dialects include Mainland dialects, Island Dialects, and the Heligoland dialect, Heligoland or "Halund" also an island. There is such a strong difference between the island and mainland forms of the North Frisian language that it has been speculated that the mainland and insular areas may have been originally populated by two separate waves of ancient Frisian colonizers, these migrations occurring in entirely different eras.
Most Frisian speakers live in the Netherlands, primarily in the province of Friesland (Fryslân in Frisian) where their number is about 440,000. In Germany, there are about 2,000 speakers of Frisian in the Saterland region of Lower Saxony, the Saterland's marshy fringe areas having long protected Frisian speech there from pressure by the surrounding Low German and High German languages.
In the Nordfriesland (Northern Frisia) region of the German province of Schleswig-Holstein, there are 10,000 Frisian speakers. While many of these Frisians live on the mainland, most are found on the islands, notably Sylt, Föhr, Amrum and Heligoland. The local corresponding Frisian dialects are still in use.
Frisian is officially recognized and protected as minority language in Germany and the Netherlands.
