Commercial resources on Norwegian

Norwegian is a Germanic language spoken in Norway. Norwegian is closely related to and generally mutually intelligible with Swedish and Danish. Together with these two languages as well as Faroese and Icelandic, Norwegian belongs to the North Germanic languages (also called Scandinavian languages). Due to isolation, Faroese and Icelandic are no longer mutually intelligible with Norwegian in their spoken form, because mainland Scandinavian has diverged from them.

As established by law and governmental policy, there are two official forms of written Norwegian Bokml (literally "book language") and Nynorsk (literally "new Norwegian"). The Norwegian Language Council recommends the terms "Norwegian Bokml" and "Norwegian Nynorsk" in English, but these are seldom used.

There is no officially sanctioned spoken standard of Norwegian, but there is a de facto spoken standard of Bokml known as Standard stnorsk (Standard East Norwegian), spoken mainly by the urban upper and middle class in East Norway. Standard stnorsk is the form generally taught to foreign students. [1]

From the 16th to the 19th centuries, Danish was the standard written language of Norway. As a result, the development of modern written Norwegian has been subject to strong controversy related to nationalism, rural versus urban discourse, and Norway's literary history. Historically, Bokml is a Norwegianized variety of Danish, while Nynorsk is a language form based on Norwegian dialects and puristic opposition to Danish. The now abandoned official policy to merge Bokml and Nynorsk into one common language called Samnorsk through a series of spelling reforms has created a wide spectrum of varieties of both Bokml and Nynorsk. The unofficial form known as Riksml is considered more conservative than Bokml, and the unofficial Hgnorsk more conservative than Nynorsk.

Norwegians are educated in both Bokml and Nynorsk, but around 8690% use Bokml as their daily written language, and 1012% use Nynorsk, although most spoken dialects resemble Nynorsk more closely than Bokml. Broadly speaking, Bokml and Riksml are more commonly seen in urban and suburban areas; Nynorsk in rural areas, particularly in Western Norway. The Norwegian broadcasting corporation (NRK) broadcasts in both Bokml and Nynorsk, and all governmental agencies are required to support both written languages. Bokml is used in 92% of all written publications, Nynorsk in 8% (2000). According to the Norwegian Language Council, "It may be reasonably realistic to assume that about 1012% use Nynorsk, i.e. somewhat less than half a million people." [1] In spite of concern that Norwegian dialects would eventually give way to a common, spoken, Norwegian language close to Bokml, dialects find significant support in local environments, popular opinion, and public policy.
