submitted verification final decision
Process-stop.svg This proposal has been rejected.
This decision was taken by the language committee in accordance with the Language proposal policy based on the discussion on this page.

The closing committee member provided the following comment:

There is no evidence that this is a separate language from Swedish. To me, it seems like Swedish with an artificial orthography and a few dialectal words. Not enough to constitute a language. Jon Harald Søby 12:28, 15 June 2007 (UTC)[reply]
