Saterland Frisian language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (860 words)
East Frisian used to be spoken in East Frisia (Ostfriesland), the region between the Dutch border and the river Weser, in the German state of Lower Saxony (Niedersachsen).
Today, the East Frisian language is no longer spoken within the historical borders of East Frisia, yet a large number of the inhabitants of that region still consider themselves Frisians and refer to their dialect of Low German as Freesk.
The last remaining living remnant of East Frisian is an Ems Frisian dialect called Sater Frisian or Saterlandic (its native name being Seeltersk), which is spoken in the Saterland area in the Verwaltungsbezirk Oldenburg, to the south of East Frisia proper.
