Norwegian language (norsk) is a language spoken approximately by five million of Norway residents. Norwegian language belongs to the Scandinavian group of the German branch of languages together with cognate Icelandic, Danish and Swedish languages. Due to geographical remoteness of some areas of Norway, the existing dialects of Norwegian language greatly differ from each other with vocabulary, as well as with grammar and syntax nuances.

During many centuries Norway didn’t have its own written language. Danish language together with Swedish and Icelandic languages acted instead of it exerted a great influence on formation processes of standard Norwegian language. Modern Norwegian language, both its verbal and written forms are realized in two variants recognized by the law:

  • «Bokmal» (word for word – book language) or «Riksmal» (supreme speech)
  • «Landsmal» (translated as a national language) or « Nynorsk» (new Norwegian).

Landsmal has been created by Ivar Aasen (the Norwegian linguist of XIX century) on the basis of west Norway dialects. At the end of XIX century Danish – Norwegian language used generally by urban residents was called «Riksmal» and both languages became the official languages. At the beginning of ХХ century both variants of standard Norwegian language got new names: «Riksmal» became called «Bokmal», and «Landsmal» - «Nynorsk». An effort to combine Riksmal and Nynorsk into common Norwegian language so-called Samnork has failed in the latter half of twentieth century and in 2002 was finally recognized as a fail.
