The Swedish language overview
Swedish is a Scandinavian language like Danish, Norwegian and Icelandic, belonging to the group of North Germanic languages. Of all the Scandinavian languages, Icelandic is the most differentiated, but Swedish follows immediately after. Danes, Norwegians, and Swedes understand each other without too much effort. But none of the speakers of these languages understand or read Icelandic, while an islander understands the other three languages quite easily. Swedish is not uniform, because there are regional variants that are more evident in pronunciation and intonation than in vocabulary or grammar: Southern Swedish, Eastern Swedish, Götaland, Gotland, Svealand, and Norrland. There are other dialectal varieties, almost all of which are disappearing.

Sweden is a relatively linguistically homogeneous country, with 85% of the population speaking Swedish as their mother tongue. This probably explains why the status of the official language of the Kingdom of Sweden was not defined in the 1975 constitution. Swedish has thus acquired this status in practice - a de facto unilingualism. In the spring of 2009, Parliament passed a language law called Språklagen (the Language Act). The law, which has 15 articles, came into force on July 1, 2009. The 2009 law recognizes what everyone living in Sweden already knows: that Swedish is the language spoken by most Swedes either as a mother tongue or as a second language. However, the law states that ‘Swedish is the main language in Sweden’ and the ‘common language of the Swedish society’. 

Geographical distribution
Swedish is the national language of Sweden and the first language of the vast majority of the approximately eight million people born in Sweden and is used by one million immigrants. In 2007, about 5.5% of the population of Finland spoke Swedish, although the percentage has been decreasing steadily over the last 400 years. The Swedish minority in Finland is concentrated in the coastal and archipelago areas of southern Finland and the West. In some of these areas, Swedish is the predominant language. In 19 municipalities, 16 of which are located in Åland, Swedish is the only official language. In many others is the majority language and is an official minority language in others.

There are large migration flows between the northern states, but because of the similarities between their languages and cultures (with the exception of Finnish), migrants, in general, assimilate quickly and they are not as a distinct group. According to the 2000 U.S. Census, about 67,000 people over five years of age are registered as Swedish speakers, but without any information on actual proficiency in speaking it. Similarly, there were 16,915 Swedish speakers in Canada as to the 2001 census data.
