Society for the Study of Finnish (Kotikielen Seura)
The Society, based in Helsinki, was founded in
1876 to promote the study and use of Finnish. The Finnish name for the
society, which literally translates as 'home language society', is tied
to the linguistic situation in Finland in the 19th century. Finnish was
officially granted equal status with Swedish in 1863, so at the time
the Society was established, Finnish was indeed the 'home language' of
the majority of people living in Finland and was just beginning to
establish itself as a language of administration, education etc. The
society organises meetings and symposia and publishes Finland's oldest
linguistic quarterly, Virittäjä. It also awards annual prizes and
scholarships for outstanding research.
President of the Society: PhD, professor Pirjo Hiidenmaa
