Language History:

Danish is part of the Germanic family of languages. During the eighth century, the common forms of Germanic language from Scandinavia and the language of Proto-Norse which had evolved into Old Norse began to develop new changes. These changes did not fully spread through Scandinavia which created two very similar dialects of Old Norse; Old West and Old East. Danish is descended from the Old East dialect.

This dialect which was common in Sweden and Denmark was almost the same until the twelfth century when they began to further develop into Swedish and Danish. During the Viking colonization of parts of England, the Old East form of Norse influenced aspects of the English language with many words deriving from Norse.

The first Danish printed book is dated in 1495 and the bible was completely translated into Danish and published in 1550.  A great many authors have written in Danish including the children’s writer Hans Christian Anderson and philosopher of existential theory Soren Kierkegaard. During the twentieth century three Danish authors became laureates for the Nobel Prize in literature.

Standard Danish is a widely spoken dialect based on the language used in and around the capitol city of Copenhagen.  There is little in the way of regional variation for the most part, largely due to the dominance of metropolitan influence on government and culture.  Despite this there are three widely recognized broad regional dialects; these can in turn be sub-divided into thirty more exact specific dialects.  Insular Danish is spoken on the islands of Zealand, Lolland, Falster, Mon and Funen.  Jutlandic is spoken throughout Jutland, although slight regional variations exist in the North, West, East and South of the peninsula.  The Bornholmsk dialect or Bornholmian is spoken on the Baltic island of Bornholm, another term for it is Eastern Danish as it shares many characteristics with the dialect spoken on Scania. This similarity dates back to the loss of several Danish islands including Scania which occurred during a war with Sweden in 1658.

Countries Spoken:

Denmark, Iceland, in the Faroe Islands as a second language, in Greenland as one of the two official national languages and in Southern Schleswig on the Danish and German border.

Some Fun Facts about Danish:

Iceland has not used Danish as an official language since 1944 however it’s still taught in schools there as a mandatory subject.

Danish is widely spoken in the Southern Schleswig region of Germany, which shares a border with Denmark, Danish is recognized as an official regional language on the German side and this is reciprocated, as German is an official regional language on the Danish side of the border.
