The dialect spoken on Suðuroy (South Island, Faroe Islands), is different to the rest, not only in speech, but also in writing. The biggest differences are: Eg → Je [meaning "I"] Vit → Okur [meaning "us" or "we"] Tit → Tykur [meaning "you" (plural)] Pronunciation changes: Æ becomes E. Sometimes, when the last letter of a word is I or U, it becomes E. Also, in that dialect, they tend to add J in the beginning of words that start with E or G, for example: Gina → Jina [meaning "straddle"] Eg → Je [meaning "I"] Gera → Jera [meaning "do"] Gil → Jil [meaning "gully" or "brook" (according to the Faroese dictionary)] Geva → Jeva [meaning "give"] Sometimes a J is put between a consonant and a vowel: Teg → Tje [meaning "you" (singular)] Meg → Mje [meaning "me"] Seg → Sje [meaning "self"]
This addition was made for Faroese [fao] in the 19th edition database.
Just want to update you about the population, and just to make it a bit more accurate.
The population in 2013 was 48,228, according to http://www.hagstova.fo/fo/talt-og-hagreitt/ibugvar (link in Faroese, unfortunately).
Hagstova Føroya counts the population every now and then, and does not only analysis of that, but many other things.
I thought I'd just tell you.
