Usage notesEdit

The language spoken in Swiss Graubünden is called Rätoromanisch or Bündnerromanisch in German and "Romansh" in English. According to some linguists it forms a group called rätoromanische Sprachen together with Ladin and Friulian, spoken in two geographically separate areas in northeastern Italy. Confusingly, this group is called Rhaeto-Romance in English. Finnish follows the German convention.
