The Norwegian and Sami language pages on this web site are unfortunately
so full of errors that they should be removed or corrected immediately
in order to avoid misleading information to be spread.

An example on http://www.ethnologue.com/show_language.asp?code=LPR
Dialects RUIJA, TORNE, SEA LAPPISH. Ruija is the Finnish name for the
territory covered by Northern-Troms and Finnmark provinces (fylker), its
not a dialect.

The term "saami" should be replaced with "sami" as in the 639 original
document (i hope).
