Jèrriais language

Jèrriais (the Jersey language), is the Norman language of the inhabitants of the Channel Island of Jersey; it is therefore an Oïl language like Gallo, Picard etc ... In Jersey there are two official languages, English and French; Jèrriais is not an official language, but is recognized as a regional language.

Jersey

Before 933AD Jersey was under the control first of continental Celts, and then of Celtic Britons from Great Britain who established Brittany. Viking settlement introduced Norse elements to the Gallo-Romance speech of the inhabitants, and this was reinforced by the incorporation of the Channel Islands into the Duchy of Normandy. When the Duke of Normandy became King of England in 1066, a link to the English monarch was established which remained after the taking of continental Normandy by the King of France in 1204. Jèrriais has not only its Gallo-Romance roots and Norse influence, but also influences from French and English, as the Island has sat between two major cultural powers for centuries.
