The Saami language is nowadays spoken by around 35,000 - 40,000 people and divided into 10 dialects. The main distinction is made between Eastern, Northern and Southern Saami dialects; Skolt Saami belongs to the "Eastern group" and is spoken by about 500 people between Inari and the Russian border - see also: Ethnologue Database and The Sámi Languages.
