Pitesamisk ordbok samt stavningsregler (Samica 2)

Front cover

The second volume of Samica, a book series published by the Department for Scandinavian Studies, was published in early October. This volume is the first ever Pite Saami dictionary, and includes nearly 5000 words with translations into Swedish and English, as well as the first ever systematic description of the language's writing system (orthography). The book was officially released on 3 October as the commencement of the Saami Culture Week in Arjeplog, Sweden.

Pite Saami is a highly endangered language spoken by only a handful of individuals from Arjeplog municipality in Swedish Lapland and adjacent areas of Norway, and has been the focus of a number of pervious and on-going externally funded research projects at the Department within the Freiburg Research Group in Saami Studies. The editor of the dictionary and author of the orthography is Joshua Wilbur, a post-doc researcher at the Department.
