King Harald sent the following message after the Norwegian handball women became world champions in Spain last night:

Jeg sender mine hjerteligste gratulasjoner med gullmedalje og som verdensmestre i håndball etter en forrykende 2. omgang mot Frankrike i Granollers!

Harald R


I send my warmest greetings with the gold medal and as world champions in handball after a stunning 2 half against France in Granollers!
Harald R

I was really surprised to see a cram packed stadion, even with masks on...the rules are so different across Europe right now Thinking

I just listend to the King's speech. It Norwegian sounded very similar to Danish to my (ignorant) ears.

Are the two langauges related and mutually understood? If I spoke danish and you spoke norwegian can we have a conversation but our prouncations are different?

Facinated by this Yes

thx.

I'm no expert so I'd go of what some of the Danish or Norwegian posters say but my understanding from Scandinavian friends of mine is they are very close languages so if you understand one you will understand the majority if not all of the other but there are differences in pronunciation hence why it sounds different. As I understand it Danish and Norwegian are closer to each other and Swedish is a bit more different again.

My understanding is that Norwegians can easily read Danish since one of the two official languages -- Bokmal -- is actually based on Danish. However my family in Norway always complain about Danish pronunciation, saying the Danes speak ``in the front of their mouths,'' whatever that means. The other official language -- Nynorsk -- has its roots in old Norse.

Norwegians, again, according to family members, can read Swedish with a bit more difficulty, but can more easily understand spoken Swedish than spoken Danish as the sounds of spoken Swedish are relatively familiar.

Of course none of this takes into consideration the zillions of extant Norwegian dialects. My family is from Selbu and its dialect is Selbyg. (I may be spelling this wrong. It could be Selbygge). Anyway, for example, you might say ``lefse'' for one of the traditional foods, but in Selbu, it's pronounced ``lampsa.'' And my grandmother's name of Ingeborg is pronounced more as if it were spelled ``Eeenabore.''

Before TV and before the national highway system that connected remote villages and before the Hurtigruten (the coastal steamer that travels daily between Bergen and Kirkenes) the dialect differences were far more pronouced. TV is, I suspect, a great leveler.

‘Harald & Sonja’ film wins funding
The long-supressed romance between Norway’s King Harald and Queen Sonja, and their nine-year battle to finally be allowed to marry, is now set to be the subject of a full-length feature film. The film, titled Harald & Sonja, has won NOK 12 million in financial support from the Norwegian Film Institute (NFI), and may become Norway’s version of the popular British series The Crown.

“The story of how then-Crown Prince Harald found and had to fight for Sonja Haraldsen isn’t just an important part of Norwegian history,” said NFI director Kjersti Mo, “it’s also an incredible love story that will touch both those who remember the story from their youth and those who hear it for the first time.”

Mo noted how the royal drama has never been shown on film, but “has the potential to draw in the public in the same way that Margrete den første, Spencer and The Crown have done.” That’s why the panel that evaluates proposed films’ appeal for its marketing program “clearly has great faith the cinema public wants this film,” Mo said.
