Communication in the courtroom may be more difficult than one might expect. This is often down to the use of legal jargon and specific terminology as well as the posing of negative or double negative questions by barristers and other legal professionals.

About Danish

Danish, known by speakers as "Dansk", is a Northern Germanic language spoken mainly in Denmark but also as a minority language in the German county Schleswig-Holstein where around 50,000 Danes live. Its speakers number approximately 6 million worldwide with small communities of Danish speakers in the USA and Canada. It is believed that 15 to 20% of the inhabitants of Greenland speak Danish as their native tongue.

Danish is descended from Old Norse which was spoken by the Germanic population during the Viking era. It is therefore similar to Swedish and Norwegian. Nonetheless, Danish is the language which has changed most substantially from Old Scandinavian, having veered away from its sister languages around 1000AD. It is now more easily understood by Norwegian speakers than Swedes, although the three languages are usually mutually intelligible to accomplished speakers. Swedes like to joke that Danish sounds like Swedish spoken with a potato in one's mouth, while Danes believe Swedish sounds like drunken Danish! 

Modern Danish is written using the Latin alphabet plus 3 additional letters:  æ, ø, and å. Old Danish used a Runic script. Examples of inscriptions date back to 250AD. The language is commonly taught in schools in Greenland, Iceland and the Faroe Islands.

Danish is recognised all over the world as a language and culture of literary significance. The anonymously-written Anglo-Saxon text Beowulf was set in Denmark. So was Shakespeare's masterpiece: Hamlet. The master of fairytales himself was also a Dane. Hans Christian Andersen's "Little Mermaid" famously sits upon a rock in Copenhagen's harbour and reminds us all of the beautiful tales spun from this fascinating language.  

Just like any other nation, Denmark has its own Business etiquette. See our Doing Business in Denmark Page for more information...
