Meeting Description

Elfdalian (autonym övdalska, Swedish älvdalska), is spoken by some three
thousand persons in the parish of Alvdalen (Älvdalen) in the northern part
of Dalecarlia (Dalarna), Sweden. This threatened linguistic variety has
been traditionally considered a Swedish dialect. However, due to the
abundance of features distinguishing it from Standard Swedish, an
increasing number of linguists advocate the recognition of Elfdalian as a
separate language.

Oðer råðstemna um övdalsky, The Second Conference on Elfdalian, is due to
be held on 2008 June 12 to 14 in Alvdalen. The arrangers are Centre for
Multiethnic Research at Uppsala University, Ulum dalska (The Association
for the Preservation of Elfdalian) and The Municipality of Alvdalen.

The orientation of the conference is scientifical and likewise popular
scientifical. The purpose of the conference is to depict Elfdalian from mainly
two angles: (1) The structure of Elfdalian and (2) The revitalization and
standardization of the language.
