Later, the era of repression encroached into a fairly large area of Scandinavian dialects. In Normandy, this turn of events occurred in the 11 century, after which the Scandinavian dialects disappear, and in Kiev and Novgorod. Britain and Ireland "liberated" from adverbs come in 12-13 centuries, and in Greenland and the Isle of Man, and the Hebrides Scandinavian dialects ceased to exist in 15 century. By 17 century in Scotland, and to 18 in the Shetland and Orkney Islands also fell out of use of the Scandinavian dialects. And during the 19-20 centuries significantly decreased their use in Finland and Estonia. Of course, that all of these areas to date, of course, there are some people who use the Scandinavian languages and dialects. History of the Scandinavian languages is divided into three periods.
It is an ancient period, which lasted until about 1350-1375 years: the average period, which lasted from 1350-1375 to 1530 years, a new period, which began in 1530 and continuing until the present time. When in Scandinavia formed the feudal State (10-11 centuries), the Scandinavian dialects began to merge into larger linguistic units called languages. Icelandic language is formed from Dialects of Norwegian settlers in Iceland, the tribes, which, together with the Norwegian language forms the western subgroup of the Scandinavian group of languages. To the east the same subgroup are Danish and Swedish. Swedish language for a long time to develop in the total complexity of parallel with the Danish language. Dialect of the Swedish language, common on the island of Gotland, has preserved many archaisms and separated during her existence drevnegutnichesky language, has become one of the languages is the basis for the formation of public and literary variants Swedish.
