Forest language

Now if watching the trees in the forest change colors isn’t your think, then how about the language of the forest? Okay, it isn’t quite what it seems. As a history buff, this article on what the author describes as a language as old as the Vikings, peaked my interest.

The article, entitled “This forest language from the age of Vikings may soon disappear: Elfdalian is spoken by less than 2,500 people in Swedish town.” by Michael d’Estries over at the Mother Nature Network, is really about the people who live in this part of Sweden and the language they speak. Cool, at least to me!

Sweet dreams!
