Norwegian belongs to the North Germanic language branch and has with Swedish, Danish, Icelandic and Faroese developed from Old Norse. Norwegian is the official language of Norway, but is also spoken in the American states North Dakota and Minnesota. Norwegian uses the Latin alphabet with additional three letters; æ, ø and å.
Norwegian has two official written language forms; Bokmål and Nynorsk, where Bokmål is the most commonly used form. The Bokmål version of the language is the version closest to Danish which was brought to the country during Denmark’s occupation of Norway from the 16th to the 19th century. Nynorsk on the other hand, was created as an alternative to Bokmål and is based on the many dialects of the country. When Norway became independent from Denmark and needed their own written language, Nynorsk attempted to be a “more Norwegian” written language. Norwegians are now taught both languages in school, where some areas in the country uses Nynorsk as their standard written language instead of Bokmål.
It‘s been difficult to estimate the number of Norwegian dialects as there’s such a wide range of differences. The Norwegian dialects differ in grammar, vocabulary, syntax, and pronunciation and can in some cases be so distinct and become unintelligible for those unfamiliar to the dialect.
Sami is another official spoken language of Norway, but is mainly spoken by the Sami people (Laplanders), which is the native population in Norway. The Sami population are now mainly populated in Norway, the USA, Sweden and Finland.
Norway is a unitary monarchy and compromises the western part of Scandinavia. Thanks to oil production Norway now have the fourth highest GDP per-capita in the world. The capital Oslo is Norway’s largest city with a population of 925,000.
