Abstract [en]

The paper introduces two sources on toponymy and linguistic groups in early Swedish Ingria. The first, a 1626 project for the organisation of parishes in western Ingria by the provost Johannes Ulwichius, specifies villages where ingerska (Izhorian/Votic) was spoken – villages with, arguably, at least some 4 000–5 000 individuals – uncovering a compact Fennic presence in parts of the area. It also allows for cautious conclusions as to villages where Russian was the main language, providing, all in all, unique data for the ethnic map of western Ingria before the migrations of the second third of the century. The second source consists of c.145 petitions from orthodox peasants of the same general area, penned by local scribes in Russian in 1635–42. Most of the peasants were from villages whose inhabitants, as the 1626 project shows, knew ingerska. A diglossic situation is revealed where Izhorian/Votic was never committed to writing, whereas Russian remained a written medium for Fennic and Slav peasants alike. The mechanisms through which complex texts were communicated from Fennic Ingrians to Slav scribes remain inadequately known. The petitions also record a large number of oikonyms in Cyrillic, whereas most period sources preserve Ingrian toponyms only in a Latin script which hides linguistic details in Russian as well as in local Fennic.
