Norwegian – basic information

  • The Norwegian language is a member of the North Germanic subgroup, a branch of the Germanic languages. It evolved from the western dialects of the Old Norse language in the 12th century. The oldest written accounts of Norwegian date to this period. Following a union with Denmark, Danish became the dominant language in the Norwegian territory between the 16th and 19th centuries. The modern variety of Norwegian, which is now called Bokmål (“book language”) began to evolve in the 18th century and was based on the Oslo dialect and the Danish language.
  • The interesting thing about Norwegian is that there are two standard varieties of this language that coexist with each other: Bokmål and Nynorsk (“new Norwegian”).
  • The latter is spoken by 10-20% of the population, primarily from non-urban areas. Both varieties are regulated by the Language Council of Norway (Språkrådet).
  • The Norwegian dialects are divided into four major groups: Northern Norwegian, Central Norwegian, Western Norwegian, and Eastern Norwegian. These regional varieties differ primarily in pronunciation and vocabulary. The morphological and syntactic differences are much smaller.
  • Due to genetic relationship, Norwegian (Bokmål) is very close to Swedish and Danish. These three languages are regarded as mutually intelligible. Norwegians can successfully communicate with Danes and Swedes speaking their own language.
  • Norwegian is an official language of the Nordic Council.
