Danish is a Germanic language, belonging to the Skandinavian language group. It is an official language in Denmark, Greenland and the Faroe Islands, and is the lingua franca in Iceland (Iceland was formerly a Danish colony). It also enjoys protection by the state constitution of Schleswig-Holstein as a minority language.
Due to its legacy in Germany, the Danish language has left its mark in the country, particularly in South Schleswig and Schleswig-Holstein. In South Schleswig, for example, there are Danish schools specificially for the Danish people living in the region. These schools, however, are also attended by the children of German native speakers: in such cases the parents should also be able to speak Danish, since parents’ evenings etc. at these schools are held in Danish.
Danish has also greatly influenced Faroese and Norwegian. Its enormous influence on Norway’s Bokmål is due to the 400-year union between Norway and Denmark, which today tends instead to be seen by Norwegians as a period of foreign occupation.
There are many anglicisms in modern Danish. Many Danes greet each other with ‘Hej’ (from ‘Hi’); a greeting borrowed from the Americans after the Second World War.
