Saterland Frisian is the last living dialect of the East Frisian language. It is closely related to the other Frisian languages, North Frisian, which, like Saterland Frisian is spoken in Germany, and West Lauwers Frisian, which is spoken in the Netherlands.
Estimates of the number of speakers vary slightly. Sater Frisian is spoken by approximately 2,250 people, out of a total population of the Saterland area of some 10,000. An estimated 2,000 people might speak the language well, of which slightly less than a half are native speakers. The vast majority of all native speakers are found among the elder generation; Saterlandic thus is a seriously endangered language. It might, however, no longer be moribund, since several reports suggest the number of acquired speakers is raising among the younger generation and some of them raise their children in Saterlandic.
There are three fully mutually intelligible dialects, corresponding to the three main villages of the municipality of Saterland: Ramsloh, Scharrel, and Strücklingen. The Ramsloh dialect now somewhat enjoys a status as standard language, since a grammar and a word list were based on it.
The German government apparently thinks the preservation of Sater Frisian is a lost cause, and seems to be unwilling to invest much money or energy in it. Most of the work to secure the endurance of this language is therefore done by the Seelter Buund ("Saterlandic Alliance"). Along whith North Frisian and five other languages, Sater Frisian was included in Part III of the European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages by Germany in 1998.
Saterland Frisian is also known as Sater Frisian or Saterlandic.
