Jamtlandic Dialects - Name


The local name for the dialects is jämtska, which translates to English as "Jamtlandic". However, since there is no single established name for the dialects in English, the two forms Jamtlandic or Jamtish are commonly used. Jamska as such is a definite form; the original form is rarely used, besides as a verb: te jaamsk or te jamske (depending on the dialect) — "to Jamtlandic/Jamtish".
