Swedish language (svenska ) — is a North Germanic language, spoken by more than ten million people, predominantly in Sweden and parts of Finland, especially along the coast and on the Åland islands.
Standard Swedish is the national language that evolved from the Central Swedish dialects in the 19th century and was well established by the beginning of the 20th century.
While distinct regional varieties descended from the older rural dialects still exist, the spoken and written language is uniform and standardized. Some dialects differ considerably from the standard language in grammar and vocabulary and are not always mutually intelligible with Standard Swedish.
Old Swedish is the term used for the medieval Swedish language, starting in 1225.
Modern Swedish begins with the advent of the printing press and the European Reformation (1526).
Swedish has 9 vowels that make up 17 phonemes in most varieties and dialects
The Swedish alphabet is a 29-letter alphabet, using the basic 26-letter Latin alphabet plus the three additional letters Å / å, Ä / ä, and Ö / ö constructed in modern time from the habit of writing the latter letter of ao, ae and oe on top of the former.
