The Saami language is nowadays spoken by around 35,000 - 40,000 people and divided into 10 dialects. The main distinction is made between Eastern, Northern and Southern Saami dialects; Northern Saami is widely spoken in the Lappland provinces of Finland and Norway - see also: Ethnologue Database and The Sámi Languages.
