Kven - English Dictionary

How to use the dictionary

This dictionary is the first Kven - English dictionary ever to exist. The current Kven dictionary (in Norwegian) lacks the in-depth view on how a word is used, i.e. verb governance. So, our tentative writing has included the corresponding case governance to each verb. It also combines words with Finnish origin and those that are unique to Kven. Efforts have been made to try to find the best and most suitable translation based on Finnish and Norwegian. Words in this dictionary are only references, please further consult articles like the ones on Ruijan Kaiku for in-text usage. We may with clear conscience lay claim to any omissions or errors which remain.
