Description
The Society, based in Helsinki, was founded in 1876 to promote the study and use of Finnish. The Finnish name for the society, which literally translates as 'home language society', is tied to the linguistic situation in Finland in the 19th century. Finnish was officially granted equal status with Swedish in 1863, so at the time the Society was established, Finnish was indeed the 'home language' of the majority of people living in Finland and was just beginning to establish itself as a language of administration, education etc. The society organises meetings and symposia and publishes Finland's oldest linguistic quarterly, Virittäjä. It also awards annual prizes and scholarships for outstanding research.
