Swedish is closely related to Norwegian and Danish. The three languages have developed from Old Norse which was spoken in the areas of Scandinavia that are now Norway, Denmark and Sweden.
Swedish is generally divided into three main dialect areas: 1. Northern Swedish (Norrland), 2. Eastern Swedish (Finland Swedish, Estonian Swedish), 3. Svea, Gutniska (Gutamal, Gotlandic, Gutnic).
