U need to exclude Finland from that group, their language is as I understand closer to Hungarian than the other Nordic countries. As for the other ones: Danish and Norwegian is most alike. Once the all of the Nordic countries was actually under the rule of the Danish queen, then over time it has, mostly, become separate nation however there are still close ties and for example before the whole refugee crisis we could all travel among each other without using passports. Essentially we were all Vikings back in the day, so any rivalry is like family rivalry.

In terms of the written language, yes. In terms of the spoken language not so much, though Danes have it easier understanding Swedish than the other way around. Device is fluent in Swedish though so communication shouldn't really be a problem.

2021-04-23 18:48
But you guys have some words that are like meaning the opposite of what they should do ;-) Take your "Semester" which if I got right you in Swedish means holiday, while for every one else means a term in the academic world.
2021-04-24 10:42
Swedish, Norwegian and Danish are all very similar. Swedish and Norwegian can almost be compared to American English vs British English (keep in mind they are actually two different languages though). Danish is also very similar, but less so vocally. They sound... strange. But we can still understand each other relatively well. The writing is even more similar between our three languages. It wouldn't be ideal for device to play in NiP while speaking danish. It's too hard to interpret in hectic situations. Thankfully he speaks swedish fluently.

He speaks Swedish
2021-04-23 18:20
Its the same when u put potato in your mouth and start speaking swedish
2021-04-23 18:42
Like this, in writing Danish is understandable to us. When talking, I barely understand anything. The other way around you would have to ask them. I se alot of these threads over the years about nordic languages. I can help some more. Norwegians are great at both understanding and speaking Swedish, the other way around is semi possible. But norwegian writing is not possible to understand. And lastly, none of the nordic countries understand Finnish.

the 3 scandinavian nations have a shared culture and languages. Most of it coming from Denmark as the main part since Denmark is actually one of the oldest nations in Europe. and older then both Norway and much older than Sweden. Also why the "viking" age most things where just called danes, daneland, danetax and so on. Sweden was not even an idea, and Norway was only beginning to form as one. So with Denmark as the largest factor in scandinavia and often in control of Sweden and Norway the language spread from that. And the languages are different, but more so in the terms of a dialect.. Ofc over time they have grown further from the shared point. but still in terms of technical settings, it comes from the same "group" and are just dialects of the same language. Same as many others places around the world where the same language can sound very different
2021-04-24 10:53
scandinavian languages are very similar yes
