Arabic is the second largest mother tongue in Sweden

Arabic has risen and overtaken Finnish as Sweden’s second largest mother tongue, according to a report by linguist Mikael Parkvall at SvD.se. He calls it a “historic milestone”.

For hundreds of years, the Finnish language has been the second largest mother tongue in Sweden. But not anymore. With the huge Muslim immigration influx into the country, the Arabian language has quickly become the next in line to become the mother tongue of Sweden.

“An historical milestone has happened for languages ​​in Sweden: Arabic is now Sweden’s second most common mother tongue,” spokeswoman Mikael Parkvall writes in a chronicle of SvD.

When he published the book “Sweden’s language” in 2015, there were an estimated 200,000 Finnish speakers in Sweden and 155,000 Arabic speakers.

Three years later, the Arabs have moved up, and Finland will now only be in third place.

This is because of all the so-called newly arrived immigrants, but also because of the increasing middle age of the Finnish-speaking population.

Parkvall has claimed his new development is a “historical milestone” because Finnish, according to him, has been the second largest language in the country for “as long as Sweden has existed as a nation”.
