About the Danish Language

Danish (dansk) is regarded as the North Germanic languages (also known as Scandinavian languages), a sub-group of the Germanic branch of the Indo-European languages. It is spoken by around 6 million folks, mostly in Denmark; the code is moreover employed by the 50,000 Danes in the northern components of Schleswig-Holstein in Germany, where it holds the status of minority code. Danish moreover holds official status and is a compulsory topic in school in the Danish territories of Greenland and the Faroe Islands, which today enjoy limited autonomy. In Iceland and Faroe Islands, Danish is, alongside English, a compulsory foreign code taught in universities (although it might be substituted by Swedish or Norwegian). In North and South America there are Danish code communities in Argentina, the USA and Canada.

In the 8th century, the usual Germanic code of Scandinavia, Proto-Norse, had undergone some changes and evolved into Old Norse. This code started to undergo fresh changes that didn't spread to all of Scandinavia, which resulted in the appearance of 2 synonymous dialects, Old West Norse (Norway and Iceland) and Old East Norse (Denmark and Sweden). Old East Norse is in Sweden called Runic Swedish and in east Denmark Runic Danish, but until the 12th century, the dialect was approximately the same in the 2 nations. The dialects are called runic because that the key body of text appears in the runic alphabet. Unlike Proto-Norse, which was created with the Elder Futhark alphabet, Old Norse was created with all the Younger Futhark alphabet, which just had 16 letters. Due to the limited amount of runes, some runes were chosen for a range of phonemes, including the rune for the vowel u which was furthermore utilized for the vowels o, ø and y, and the rune for i which was moreover selected for e.

A change that separated Old East Norse (Runic Swedish/Danish) from Old West Norse was the change of the diphthong æi (Old West Norse ei) to the monophthong e, as in stæin to sten. This really is reflected in runic inscriptions where the elder read stain and the later stin. There was furthermore a change of au as in dauðr into ø as in døðr. This change is shown in runic inscriptions as a change from tauþr into tuþr. Moreover, the øy (Old West Norse ey) diphthong changed into ø as effectively, as in the Old Norse word for "island".

Some well-known authors of functions in Danish are existential philosopher Søren Kierkegaard, prolific fairy story writer Hans Christian Andersen, and playwright Ludvig Holberg. Three 20th century Danish authors have become Nobel Prize laureates in Literature: Karl Adolph Gjellerup and Henrik Pontoppidan (joint recipients in 1917) and Johannes Vilhelm Jensen (granted 1944). Danish was when commonly spoken in the northeast counties of England. Many Danish derived words like gate (gade) for street, nonetheless survive in Yorkshire and different components of eastern England colonized by Danish Vikings. The city of York was when the Danish settlement of Jorvik. The initially printed book in Danish dates from 1495. The initial complete translation of the Bible in Danish was published in 1550. Danish is the nationwide code of Denmark, 1 of 2 official languages of Greenland (the different is Greenlandic), and 1 of 2 official languages of the Faroes (the alternative is Faroese). Additionally, there is a little community of Danish speakers in Schleswig, the part of Germany bordering Denmark, where it is very an officially recognized territorial code, only as German is north of the edge. Additionally, Danish is regarded as the official languages of the European Union and among the functioning languages of the Nordic Council. Under the Nordic Language Convention, residents of the Nordic nations talking Danish have the chance to utilize their native code when interacting with official bodies in alternative Nordic nations without being liable to any interpretation or translation bills.

There is not any law stipulating an official code for Denmark, creating Danish the de facto code just. The Code of Civil Procedure does, though, lay down Danish as the code of the courts. Since 1997 public authorities have been obliged to observe the official spelling through the Orthography Law.
