Background of the Norwegian language

Generally, Norway has three official languages. They are Bokmål (Book Language), Nynorsk (New Norwegian) and the Sámi language.

Sámi is completely separate and only taught in Norwegian schools with Sámi pupils.

The most commonly used is Bokmål which is heavily influenced by Danish, used in most written works and spoken by over 80% of the population, especially those living in urban areas. It is the main language of instruction and broadcasting.

Nynorsk was created in the mid-19th century and combines many rural dialects; legislation requires that it must be used in a certain percentage of schools and broadcast media.

Around the country some 272 dialects of the Norwegian language continue to be spoken in rural areas. The Sámi minority people of North Norway speak their own languages but also learn Norwegian in school. Although Danes, Swedes and Norwegians can understand each other’s languages, only 4 million people in the world speak Norwegian.

Norwegian belongs to the northern group of Germanic languages. It is very close to Swedish and Danish and is also related to English, German and Dutch. English is taught in all Norwegian schools and is spoken widely as a foreign language.

Norwegian and Scandinavian Languages

The languages spoken in Scandinavia are called North Germanic languages, and include Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Icelandic, Faroese. These languages are generally sorted into the East- (Danish, Swedish) and West-Scandinavian (Norwegian, Icelandic) languages. Finnish belongs to the Finno-Ugric language family. Danish is a North Germanic language, on the same branch of the Indo-European family tree as Icelandic, Faroese, Norwegian, and Swedish. Related to Icelandic and Faroese, Norwegian also hangs off of the northern Germanic branch of the Indo-European family tree. It is spoken by approx. 5,000,000 people.

Norwegian and Swedish are among the few European tonal languages, which are language where the tone in a syllable of two otherwise identical words can change their meaning. Norwegian is also spoken in parts of Denmark and Sweden. Swedish is very similar to Danish and Norwegian, other North Germanic languages. There are at least 9 million speakers of Swedish. Swedish is Sweden’s national language, and also one of Finland’s two national languages.

Language Number of Speakers Notes
Swedish 10,000,000
Danish 6,000,000
Norwegian 5,000,000 approximaterly 85-90 % prefer Bokmål, 10-15 % Nynorsk
Icelandic 320,000
Faroese 70,000
Jamtlandic 45,000
