Background of the Danish Language

The Danish language, also known as the Dansk language, is the official language of the people of Denmark. Over 5 million people today speak the Dansk language. Dansk is spoken by a few communities south of the German border and is taught in schools in the Faroe Islands of Iceland and Greenland. The language is part of the North Germanic languages. It is related to other Scandinavian languages but was separated about 1000 AD. The oldest documentation of the Danish language was found in runic inscriptions in the Jutland of southern Sweden from circa 250-800 AD. The earliest manuscripts in Danish were from the 13th century.

Of all the Scandinavian languages, Danish has gone through the greatest change from Old Scandinavian. During the Middle Ages, it had lost it’s old case system, had combined masculine and feminine into one common gender and acquired German-type words, prefixes and suffixes. This was primarily due to contact with traders from the Hanseatic League.

Today, the Danish language has drastically evolved from what it was many years ago. In modern Danish, there are only two cases, nominative and genitive and two genders, common and neutral. As old as the language is, it continues to change. Not long ago, in 1948, the language eliminated the capitalization of nouns and made spelling more similar to Norwegian and Swedish by replacing the aa letter for the å.
