Frisian

  1. the language group (West Frisian, Saterland Frisian, and North Frisian) spoken by many people in the Dutch province of Friesland, some people in Northern Germany and in some parts of Denmark, mainly west coast
  2. (Template loop detected: Template:context 1) the West Frisian language
  3. an alternate name for the West Frisian language, widely used in informal speech and writing, or where context makes the meaning unambiguous. (Compare: America, when synonymous with the United States of America.)

Usage notes

Some linguists consider West Frisian, Saterland Frisian, and North Frisian to be varieties of a single language called “Frisian”. As they are not mutually intelligible, other linguists and the speakers consider them to be separate languages in a language group called “Frisian”. East Frisian is a West Low German dialect.
