Was the tag scandinavian-languages, which was created for this question, based on the assumption that these languages are genetically related?
I have proposed the following edit to the tag wiki info to clarify that "Scandinavian languages" are not a linguistic term:
This tag is for all languages spoken in Scandinavia (and their dialects).
Note that not all languages in Scandinavia belong to the same language family:
- Danish, Swedish and Norwegian are North Germanic languages, a branch of the Indo-European languages,
- Finnish and Karelian are Finnic languages, a branch of the Uralic language family,
- the Sami languages are a different branch of the Uralic languages than the Finnic languages.
In light of this, do we want to keep the tag, or do we want to replace it with other tags, such as germanic-languages and finnic-languages?
Update September 2017: The tag
scandinavian-languages no longer exists (and should not be brought back).
