About this title


Sark Norman French (SNF) is a Norman French variety spoken on the island of Sark, the smallest of the Channel Islands. The variety is spoken by fewer than 50 people and is in a state of was established on Sark in the sixteenth century by a group of mainly Jersey Norman French speakers, but then evolved in relative isolation until late nineteenth century. SNF is a very conservative Norman French variety, which unlike mainland Norman French has not been strongly influenced by standard French lexis, although in recent years, there has been large scale borrowing from English. The dictionary gives English language equivalents for each SNF term, along with grammatical information and etymologies for each entry. There is also an English-SNF finder list.
