Category talk:Frisian language
Y'know, Frisian isn't just one language
Hi, everybody. I just wanted to point out that Frisian is not a language, but a family of languages. One of the images in this collection illustrates that better than I can in words:
If you care, it's really not accurate to jumble them up like this. There should probably be a master category for the language family. The image I've linked would belong there. And then three subcategories:
- 1 West Frisian, aka Westerlauwers Fries, Frysk, spoken in Friesland in the Netherlands,
- This is the language of the wikipedia/wiktionary duo: http://fy.wikipedia.org http://fy.wiktionary.org. (This is the one that some sloppy/lazy people, including myself, in posts all over these projects, sometimes call simply "Frisian.")
- 2 Sater Frisian, Seeltersk, see:
- Oh goodness, I just now discovered, they've got a wikipedia, too! http://stq.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haudsiede (I'd better hurry up and break that habit of mine in the first parenthetical!)
- 3 And North Frisian (Nordfriisk), http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_Frisian (the German article is better if you can read it http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nordfriesische_Sprache), a recognised minority language of Germany spoken by about 10,000 people in the north, mainly in Schleswig-Holstein (Slaswik-Holstiinj to them).
If you think it's worth cleaning this up, I'm happy to help. But I'd need some hand holding on the tech and naming conventions.
