Norwegian language definitions

Britannica Concise

N. Germanic language of the W. Scandinavian branch, spoken in Norway. Old Norwegian became a separate language by the end of the 12th cent. Middle Norwegian became the tongue of most native speakers around the 15th cent. Modern Norwegian has two rival forms. Dano-Norwegian (Bokmå l, or Riksmå l), the more popular, stems from written Danish used during the union of Denmark and Norway (1380-1814; see Union of Kalmar). It is used in national newspapers and most literary works. New Norwegian (Nynorsk), based on W rural dialects, was created by Ivar Aasen in the mid-19th cent. to carry on the tradition of Old Norse. Both languages are used in government and education. Plans to unite them gradually in a common language, Samnorsk, are controversial.
