Abstract [en]

If language is suggestive of how we understand the world, then ummikko speaks volumes about the culture that coined it. Ummikko is Mean Kieli (lit. ‘Our Language’), a Finnish dialect that is governed by the rules of Finnish grammar but which includes extensive and imaginative borrowing from Swedish vocabulary. It is spoken or understood by approximately 40,000 people, most of whom live in the north of Sweden close to the Finnish border. This area, usually referred to as Tornedalen, provides the setting for Mikael Niemi’s best-selling novel Popular Music, published in Sweden in 2000.
