Apparently there's been a recent study indicating that 1 in 3 Norwegians under the age of 30 prefer to speak English when speaking with Danes, instead of trying to communicate using their very closely related sister languages.

This doesn't mean a whole lot for a non-Scandinavian, but I find it pretty hilarious. They also interviewed an Icelandic fellow, who said that he prefers speaking English in most settings (including when addressing Danes, despite having learned Danish in school) because "Come on, Icelandic is the most impractical language in the world".

Bah, you should just speak your own language while faking the accent of whomever you are speaking to and throw in some words of the other language in for effect.

Portunhol is a perfectly legitimate language.

I mean, that's pretty much what scandis do anyways. People just speak whichever flavor of Danish/Norwegian/Swedish they're most comfortable with, and the other person normally gets the gist enough to respond with their own preferred language, with everyone kinda subconsciously tweaking their dialect so that it leans into the other language.

And the study says it's STILL what 80% of young Norwegians do when confronted with Swedish... But Denmark gets to be the odd child out because nobody can understand what they're saying.

Honestly though, I've met Norwegians that I'd rather speak English with, because they come from the ass-end of Nowheresville in Norway and have cultivated a unique dialect with the other five residents that is completely and utterly incomprehensible to outsiders. It's not exclusive to country borders.

Linguistically speaking (as in according to a linguist I saw on tv some time ago) Norwegian and Swedish is technically the same language, while Danish is a separate language, so that makes sense.

Naturally it is such that Norwegian is a dialect of Swedish, of course, not the other way around.

Actually, the entire Scandinavian peninsula is technically the part of Northwestern Russia. *wink wink*

How dare you imply that the Rebellious Eastern and Western Provinces of the Finnish Empire have any right to independence?

Yes, be very careful! Also, don't bend the lithium batteries! It makes the pixies angry!

Portunhol is a perfectly legitimate language.

Can confirm, learned Spanish because it's in the school curriculum and my mother grew in Argentina, still speak portuñol at first when I encounter hermanos. To establish dominance.
