Who speaks Norwegian?
Similarly as Swedish, Norwegian belongs to the group of the North Germanic languages constituting part of the Indo-European language family. It is estimated that approximately 5 million people communicate in this language. Norwegian is a language with strongly accented dialects, indicating where the person comes from. Interestingly, there is no one generally accepted pronunciation. Two forms are adopted in the public life: Bokmål (used by 3.5 million people) and Nynorsk (used by approximately 700 thousand people).
In Norwegian we may only communicate in Norway and in some very few communities in Sweden or Denmark.
History of the German language
First records in Norwegian come from the 12th century. Between the 16th and 18th centuries, the Norwegian elite used … Danish, but, over time, Norwegian writers tried to change this tendency. In the middle of the 18th century, Riksmål (currently Bokmål), meaning “written language”, appeared. On the basis of western dialects, the second variety – Landsmål was created (currently Nynorsk). In the 19th century, Landsmål was the official language along with Danish. Since 1885, both Norwegian standard varieties have had the equal official status.
Use of the Norwegian language in business
Norwegian is useful only in commercial contacts with Norway. In the international arena, Norwegian does not play a significant role.
