About Faroese Language

Faroese language is an Insular Nordic language spoken by 48000 people in the Faroe Islands and about 25000 Faroese people in Denmark and elsewhere. It is one of four languages descended from the Old West Norse language spoken in the Middle Ages, the other being Icelandic, Norwegian and the extinct Norm.

Thought it is not a popular language in the world, it enjoys a long history, evolved between the 9th and the 15th centuries, but with 300 years unwritten.

Like other languages, learning Faroese language has to start from its alphabet, which consists of 29 letters derived from the Latin alphabet. The following figures show its majuscule and minuscule forms that we can also all capital letters and small letters.

The Faroese grammar is related and very similar to that of modern Icelandic and Old Norse with three grammatical genders and four cases.

Most of the innovations that appeared in Old Norse spread evenly through the Old Norse area. As a result, the dialects of Faroese language were very similar and considered to be the same language. They are sometimes called the Danish tongue and sometimes Norse language. However, there are some changes are limited to geography and so created a dialectal difference between Old West Norse and Old East Norse.

The culture of the Faroe Islands has its roots in the Nordic culture. Because it is long isolated from the main cultural phases and movements in Europe, the Faroese have maintained a great part of their traditional culture including music and chain dance, literature and art, handcrafts, as well as sports.

Deeply understanding and studying of the Faroese culture would be very useful for the translation work.
