# Override polyglossia language feature [duplicate]

I'm using the package polyglossia, setting the language to nynorsk. I notice, however, that polyglossia's feature for the abstract environment is incorrect, since Sammendrag is not Nynorsk. How can I override this and provide my own heading in this case?

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{polyglossia}
\setdefaultlanguage{nynorsk}

\begin{document}
\begin{abstract}
\end{abstract}
\end{document}


• And the babel answer works for polyglossia too, so I don't think a bounty is really needed: \addto\captionsnynorsk{\renewcommand\abstractname{Abstrakt}} (or whatever word you want.) – Alan Munn Feb 9 '14 at 17:24
• @AlanMunn I'll edit the accepted answer yonder and close this question (EDIT: you beat me to it! :)). – Sverre Feb 9 '14 at 17:27
