If you learned the language, obviously it won't be incoherent. Knowing a language, is per definition the opposite of something being incoherent....

what i meant is different linguistic rules of it are incoherent, just like the "en/et"(english "a") usage ohh yeah you have to find out which words fit to "en" and "et" randomly, and the best tip is to go for "en" 80% of the times because it's the bigger chance.. no specific rule for usage of both :) by the way, why the fuck do you have to use reverted verb + pronoun when the sentence starts with an adverb/object pronoun? Oh yeah, what about sentences with subordinate clauses? If a sentence starts with it "When I was young(for ex), if you say right after(independent clause) "I lived in Denmark", you have to revert too, lmfao. "When I was young, lived I in Denmark" Now you're gonna tell me this isn't fucking retarded? With all due respect to your country's history and etc

It's not like Portuguese doesn't have weird rules/grammar. To us it's pretty normal. I'm not really sure what you are asking, and what you're finding difficult? Well, "Lived I in Denmark", would be a question. "Boede jeg i Danmark (?)" if written alone. That's why you can't first say when you were young, and then ask. Or you could, but you would be asking a question, not stating that you lived in Denmark when you were young. "Da jeg var ung, boede jeg i Danmark?" - "Da jeg var ung boede jeg i Danmark."

One of the hardest... Get over yourself. It's not even top10. Mandarin, Japanese, Korean... Arabic, Finnish etc etc.. Hebrew, Hindi, Farsi, Russian, Thai? Danish is not an easy language to learn, but there's no fucking way it's harder than 5 of the ones I just mentioned. Kalder du dig selv dansker, når du vælger at nævne fucking Royal Arena, når du skal nævne en berømt dansk bygning? Fis af, forpulede møgunge. Tvivler om jeg er dansker?

Not at all. Any Germanic person would be able to learn Danish faster than Mandarin, to take an example. Pronounciation might not be 100% on point, but you won't get there with Mandarin either

2022-01-17 18:55
I don't find it difficult, except for the "en/et" that you have to randomly use both since you can't guess which one is the right arcticle What i meant is "When I was young, lived I in Denmark" has to be written considering the sentence started with a subordinate clause, i mean.. why does it need to be reverted? the verb and pronouns anyways i studied all of that 3 years ago, same period i abandoned.. not for the difficulty though, had a hard adaption but i was getting used easily

En gulerod / guleroden. Et blad / bladet. If it ends on "en", it starts with "en". That's sort of the rule. With a few exceptions that noone really get. Like a hamster. Everyone says "et hamster", when it's actually "en hamster".

y'know I always wondered how foreigners would be able to learn en/et (fælleskøn/intetkøn) because like u said it is completely random what gender a noun has, but u just know what is right and wrong when u are danish, so it's an easy way to tell if someone has just started learning danish same thing pretty much goes for the "subordinate clause"; it just sounds better, I can't explain to u why hahah but yeah, danish is an awful language imo, german is even worse and u are forced to learn it as a danish kid :')

Interesting to see your POV in #156 claiming Danish grammar is easily(unlike pronounciation) which i completely agree, back at when i was 16, i was studying danish and i wondered how danish kinds would even know what a subordinate clause is so they can revert the grammatical classes in the next clause hahaha, like if they knew what a clause is xD

well, thats the thing - danish is very easy if u grew up speaking it, but once u start to break down the grammar as a foreigner, it gets very complicated, and the exact same thing goes for german when I was in my last year of high school an exchange student from California came to our school and she ended up staying in Denmark for two more years after high school, but she didn't learn danish from a book but instead tried to learn it solely from speaking, and honestly I think she kinda nailed it at the end except for maybe a bit of a dialect and ofc the en/et dilemma

Germanic languages are not random. Thye have simply lost what makes it obvious what the structure is, unlike most romance languages. You no longer know what words have i-mutation (eg. foot - feet/fall - fell) because we no longer have the suffix that initiated it in the first place. Besides, all languages have irregularities and randomness, if you could even call it that. French has aspirated and unaspirated H, which affects how it is used with liason, to me that's random. It's all just a matter of perspective
2022-01-17 20:42
romance languages have the randomness in masculine and feminine tho

I don´t think you´re being disrespectful, and you have some valid points. I teach danish to 3rd graders and it´s a nightmare because so much lacks logic. Pronunciation and spelling has little to do with each other. I would choose norwegian or swedish, just to have a language that is pronounced more like it´s spelled. And they sound better too.

I've heard icelandish is the closest to the "Old Norse" which used to be the language by the Vikings, I wonder if this language is the most incoherent between the 5 nordic ones.. hope some iceland guy shows up in my reply Two questions, my fellow "you have some valid points" do you think some of them were invalid on other hand? i mean you said some, not all of them And in the last paragraph, do you mean you'd like to born in a country which speaks those languages, or learn as secondary?

I mean that once you master a language, you grow to appreciate it too, including it´s irregularities. In it´s own way it´s not stupid - just different. It´s a language in it´s own right, and is under no obligations to follow the rules of others, even if it would be easier. I would add, that the irregularities include numbers. Where Sweden goes the traditional way, and says 79 = sjuttio nio, danish goes completely berserk once you get to 30: 79: Ni og halvfjerds. It means "nine and half way to the fourth twenty" = 9 + 20 + 20 + 20 + 10. 80: Firs = short for firsindstyvende = four times twenty. I like danish, but would recommend norwegian or swedish to foreigners.

I work with Estonian ship crews daily, and some of them talk this simplified finnish/estonian language even over the radio which distorts the speech a bit. Still understandable, in this case both sides simplify their speech so the others understand. Other crew members (especially younger ones) speak English, and it works well of course. I visited Denmark properly (taking the train from "coast to coast" etc) several years ago and it was kind of similar in that I could figure things out with my Swedish (native speaker) but I could not have in-depth conversations in "danish".

Not if you speak extremely slowly. Unlike estonian and finnish the main grammar in danish and swedish is extremely similar and i can read danish with no problem. Obviously speaking slowly like a retard might make it more useful to switch to english instead but it is possible.
2022-01-18 13:40
It depens on where in Denmark, because i can understand swedish, as long as they dont speak very fast and the same the other way around. Some words are different, but most of the time you get the idea anyway. Norwegian i undertand even better, its really similair to danish.

As somebody else stated Swedish will let you talk to the largest number of people. If you dont care about that and just want to learn a new language I would go with Icelandic since its the closest to how vikings spoke and will give you some bragging rights.

Norwegian, Danish, Swedish and Icelandic is very similar. A kid from either country could easily learn one of the other languages in a short time. None of our languages look like German. Icelandic comes from Norwegian, so that's why they sound similar. Funny thing is, Icelandic people often learn danish. (Dont know how often, but it's not uncommon) Only weird difference is that Swedes say numbers the other way around from us. Like 24 = tjugofyra (twenty and four). We say fireogtyve (four and twenty). So we say numbers like Germans, and Swedes say numbers like in English.

So much of what you wrote is incorrect. Icelandic is quite different from the Scandinavian languages, or rather I should say the Scandinavian languages are quite different from Icelandic as Icelandic is the most similar to Old Norse. The vast majority of Icelandic is intelligible to Scandinavians. Our number system is based on the French/Gaulic base 20 system. But we do indeed say the single numbers before the tens like the Germans do.

So much of what I wrote is incorrect? The fuck are you talking about. "The Origin of the Icelandic Language Icelandic is a West-Nordic, Indo-European and Germanic language. Its roots can be traced back to the oldest Nordic language which was spoken in Scandinavia between 200 and 800 A.D.. During the Viking age, year 793 A.D. to 1066 the Nordic language split into East and West. East-Nordic later developed to Danish and Swedish and the Western part evolved to Norwegian, Faroese (spoken in the Faroe Islands), and some centuries later, Icelandic. Most of the Icelandic settlers came from West-Norway which explains the connection. Therefore, in the early days, Norwegian and Icelandic were almost the same but around the year 1400, the languages had changed enough to be recognized as two different tongues. The differences would continue to grow throughout the years. " Sorry dude, but you must be confusing something here. I never said we could understand Icelandic, but it's much more similar to the scandinavian languages than any other language I can think of. So what other part is wrong? The number thing, what are you even commenting on? You're just saying what I did, except I explained it with his comment about Swedish and German.

You wrote, and I quote: "Norwegian, Danish, Swedish and Icelandic is very similar. A kid from either country could easily learn one of the other languages in a short time." That is just blatantly wrong. Learning Icelandic is 10x times more difficult than learning one of the other Scandinavian languages for a Scandinavian.

What I meant by that was obviously that Norwegian/Swedish/Danish kids can easily learn those 3. And Icelandic/Faroe Island kids can easily learn those 3. Since they already do. But I would still imagine a Danish/Norwegian speaking kid would have an easier time learning Icelandic than learning Japanese.

I can understand basic sentences and specific words out of Swedish due to my knowledge of German, which I can't with any other nordic language. I don't know how obvious it can be from a native speaker perspective but to me, it's glowing. Speaking about Icelandic people talking Danish, no one mentioned Faroese? They often speak Danish too because it's part of your kingdom, right?

Danish would be the easiest for you, you have similar accents already so I think the pronouncication would be right at your alley. What is your specific reason to learn one of the nordic languages? Is it work related? Study related? If you're a student, go as an exchange student to the country which speaks the language you want to learn. By far the best way to learn is to speak with locals.

I find your question to be odd, because you show no reasoning for it. Why do you need to learn a Nordic language and what use are you expecting to get from it? If you know why you need to learn it then picking wich one should be obvious for you. You want to be understood in the most places? Then learn Swedish. Looking for a job? They pay well in Norway so learn that. Cant really think of a reason to learn Danish or Finnish but if you have a specific reason for them then its already decided isnt it. I would pick Finnish based on that I think the language is different and fun. Aswell as liking the Finnish people (hltv people excluded obviously), aswell as Norwegians understanding me great without me learning their language so would be less valuable for me. This is the perspective of a Swede so my reasoning would likely not apply to you.
