Danish – basic information

  • Danish is a member of the North Germanic subgroup, a branch of the Germanic languages. It began to evolve as a separate language in the 11th century (like Swedish, it emerged from the Old Norse language). Danish is written in the Latin script, which replaced the Runic alphabet at the start of the second millennium. One of the oldest Danish manuscripts is the Code of Jutland, a civil code which was in force for the next four centuries. Modern Danish began to emerge in the 17th century from the Zealand dialect. Currently, the standard variety is regulated by the Dansk Sprognævn (the Danish Language Committee).
  • In Danish there are three major dialect groups: Insular Danish (ømål), Jutlandic (jysk), and Bornholmian (bornholmsk). As a high proportion of Danes live in the metropolitan area of Copenhagen, the dialect of the capital city enjoys high social prestige while local varieties are gradually declining in popularity.
  • Due to genetic relationship, Danish is very close to Swedish and Norwegian (Bokmål). These three languages are regarded as mutually intelligible. Danes can successfully communicate with Swedes and Norwegians speaking their own language.
  • Danish is an official language of the European Union and the Nordic Council.

Interesting facts

  • Compared to other languages, dansk contains a very large number of vowel sounds. Overall, there are 27 vowels, including 12 long, 13 short and 2 schwa vowels that occur only in unstressed syllables. An example of the high vowel frequency is the following sentence from the Jutlandish dialect of Danish: A e u o æ ø i æ å, which means “I am out on the island in the river”.
  • Like in Swedish, the definite article (the equivalent of the English the) is postfixed to the noun (added as a suffix), e.g. bil (Eng. car) → bilen (the car).
  • Standard Danish has two grammatical genders: common, which arose from the combination of the masculine and feminine genders, and neuter.
  • A distinctive feature of Danish vocabulary is very long noun compounds. A good example is one of the longest words in the Danish language: ejendomsavancebeskatningsloven. Its English equivalent is the phrase “property sales tax law”.
  • One of the most difficult words to pronounce in the Danish language is angstskrig (Eng. scream of fear), which contains a seven-consonant cluster.
