Norwegian – a conservative, radical, literal language and a language of the land

If you’re going to Norway for a visit or a holiday, you’ll get by using English. However, if you want to study or work in Norway, you should learn this Scandinavian language. Not only will it enable you to get better study results or a better job, you’ll also be able to understand Danish and Swedish.

Norwegian has four standardised forms: Bokmål – known as literary or administrative Norwegian, Nynorsk – New Norwegian or semi-artificial Norwegian formerly known as Lansmål (the language of the land), radical Nynorsk, also called Høgnorsk, and Riksmål – a conservative variety of Bokmål. Norwegian has 5 million native speakers.

Danish in Norwegian

Norwegian belongs among the North Germanic or Scandinavian languages. They are divided into West and East Scandinavian languages. The first group includes Old Norwegian, Nynorsk, and contemporary Norwegian dialects. The second group comprises Bokmål, standard Norwegian, and Riksmål, Danish used in Norway.

There are two official languages in Norway: Norwegian and Lapp, which is from the Finno-Ugric language group. Many people also speak one of the numerous dialects. All of them are standard language varieties and differ mainly in phonetics. An interesting fact is that, in Norway, people address each other quite informally – they’re usually on first-name terms.

As for grammar, Norwegian is an analytical language, and has a fixed word order, long vowels, and a melodic accent. Out of the original four cases, only nominative and genitive are still used today. Norwegian uses Latin script, and its alphabet consists of 29 letters including the special characters æ, ø and å.

The longest Norwegian word is composed of an incredible 66 letters and is used in the Navy. It’s the word, “Dampskipsundervannsstyrkeprøvemaskinerikonstruksjonsvanskeligheter”, which means “a sunk Styrkeprøven steamship had a machinery problem”.
