This resource is offered by Kotus, Kotimaisten kielten keskus, the Institute for the Languages of Finland.
The database is built on the ca. 25,000 North Saami entries of Nielsen’s Pohjoissaamen sanakirja [North Saami Dictionary]. The words were incorporated in the database in cooperation with the Finno-Ugric Department of the University of Helsinki. The database includes the variants, as well as the etymological and derivational references at the end of the word articles, given in Nielsen’s dictionary. Each word is also provided with English-language meanings based on the data in Nielsen’s dictionary; Finnish meanings based on Sammallahti’s Saamelais-suomalainen sanakirja [Saami-Finnish dictionary]; and German meanings based on Sammallahti and Nickel’s Saamisch-deutsches Wörterbuch.
