A short history of the Norwegian language
The Norwegian language is a North-Germanic language like Danish and Swedish. It is spoken by 5 million people in Norway, but it can also be heard in Denmark, Sweden, Spain, the UK, Canada and the United States.
The language began with Viking traders who spoke Old Norse, a language that was used throughout the Scandinavian countries. Old Norse eventually broke up into eastern and western Norse. The Norwegian language was part of Western Norse.
The language changed again from 1536 when Norway was ruled by Denmark and Danish was gradually adopted by literate Norwegian people. When Denmark ceased to rule Norway in 1814 many people by then spoke Danish as their mother tongue.
Eventually a movement developed for the creation of a new Norwegian language and a language called Landsmal was created. It was based on regional dialects. Later another language was introduced called Riksmal, which was a written language and similar to Danish.
In 1929 the two languages were changed; Landsmal became Nynork meaning New Norwegian and Riksmal became Bokmal, meaning book language.
Today Norwegian children are taught both languages, but they make the choice of one or the other as a main language. Government bodies are expected to speak both.
