Norwegian

Norwegian consists of two distinct dialects, Bokmål and Nynorsk. Both are part of the Scandinavian language family of the Germanic branch of Indo-European languages, and have equal status in Norway where there are approximately 4 million.

Bokmål (literally "book language") is is closely related to Danish and is used primarily in the cities, for newspaper publishing and television and radio broadcasts.

Nynorsk is a dialect that was formed in the mid-1800s from the rural dialects of Norwegian and is used by about 1 million people.
