Abstract [en]

This paper investigates the dialect of the parish of By, which is in the south east of Dalecarlia (Dalarna). The investigation focuses on the vocabulary, and dialect word knowledge of the younger generation (school children about twelve years old). This article presents four identical dialect studies, the first one from 1980, the second and the third from the late nineties and the last from 2010. According to the results of these studies, the younger generation´s familiarity with dialect words has diminished considerably over the last thirty years. In 2010 only a few of the informants are familiar with the meaning of the dialect words. The investigation shows that this development (the decline of the dialect) ought to be seen from a sociolinguistic and demographic point of view, where we pay attention not only to contact between the generations but also to industrial mobility and increasing migration.
