Characteristics of the Norwegian language

Many people are surprised when they find out that there are 2 different forms of written and spoken Norwegian in Norway: Bokmål and Nynorsk, which are the languages that are used for official administration such as in churches, schools, on television and radio. The two of them are very similar whilst the Sami language is of a totally different origin. Bokmål means literally “book tongue” and Nynorsk is “new Norwegian”. Both provide standards for how to write Norwegian, but none of them set any rules on how to speak it. Thus, there is no officially sanctioned standard of spoken Norwegian. Most Norwegians speak their own dialect in all circumstances

Norwegians are educated in both Bokmål and Nynorsk and the two forms of the Norwegian language are both used in public administration, in schools, churches, and on radio and television. Together with neighbors Swedish and Danish, Norwegian forms a continuum of fairly mutually intelligible local and regional variants called “Scandinavian languages” which constituted the North Germanic language group together some Icelandic, Faroese and some other extinct languages.

The third language spoken in Norway is Sami, which is spoken by the indigenous people of Norway and is considered to have been formed 2,000-3,000 years ago around Karelia (now Russia) as proto-Samic, and between 1,000 B.C. to 700 A.D in its present form. It is considered to be of equal status as the other two languages and it is also spoken in parts of Sweden, Finland and Russia, reaching from the southern part of central Scandinavia in the southwest to the tip of the Kola Peninsula in the east. Sami is strongly dialectal and some varities of spoken in the Northen part of Scandinavia are not intelligible to speakers of other dialects.

Brief History of Norwegian Language

Danish was the standard written language of Norway, as it ruled the country, from the 16th to the 19th centuries. This has affected the development of modern written Norwegian, which has been subject to strong controversy, mostly influenced by nationalism, and also by confrontation of rural forms versus urban discourse, as well as by Norway’s literary history. Historically, Bokmål can be considered the Norwegian variety of Danish. Nynorsk can be considered as a purist form o amalgamation of Norwegian dialects in opposition to Danish. Through waves of viking invasions into Britain, different varieties of Scandinavian entered the English language. Thus, depending on one pronunciation or another, the same word “shirt” or “skirt”, which meant the same thing (the long robe used in medieval times) has come to mean different objects which initially were one.

Norwegian uses practically the same word order as is found in English. This makes it easy to learn to English speakers. If you know some Norwegian then you’ll find that you can maybe even do some of your own simple translations.

Economy and Demographics

In 2013, the Norwegian government said that 14% of the Norwegian population were immigrants or children of two immigrant parents, one of the highest percentages in Europe. About 6% of the immigrant population in Norway came from either the European Union, North America or Australia, whilst around 8,1% come from Africa, Latin America or Asia. In the US, some 4,8% of the population claim to have Norwegian ancestry as tens of thousands of Norwegians emigrated and settled mostly in the Midwest and Pacific Northwest from the 19th century onwards. Descendants in the US are close to 5 million, which is more than the population of Norway in 2014. Canada has around 450,000 citizens claiming some kind of Norwegian ancestry.

The second largest Norwegian community in Europe can be found around Alfas del Pi (Alicante, Spain), a twin sister town of Oslo. This town has Norwegian-speaking schools, pharmacies and stores. Local Norwegians claim that it is the 4th largest Norwegian city in the world. The first city in Europe with most Norwegians outside Norway is London.

Interestingly for corporations, Norway can boast the 2nd-highest GDP per-capita (1st is Luxembourg) and 4th-highest GDP (PPP) per-capita in the world and an active online market.  Norway ranked as the second-wealthiest country in the world in monetary value in 2013. It also had the largest capital reserve per capita of any nation as a result of its large crude oil and petroleum gas reserves (33% and 25% of its exports respectively).
