View Full Version : Swedish dialects website

Monday, February 25th, 2008, 02:12 AM
I just wanted to share this awesome website (http://swedia.ling.gu.se/). It's a treasure trove of dialects from all around the country for analytical and casual use. I wasn't sure if this would be better in the Sweden section or not, but I figured it was appropriate enough here. It's in Swedish, so at least basic reading skills are required to navigate throughout.
