Danish is a North Germanic language (also known as Scandinavian language), derived from the East Nordic dialect group. It is spoken by around 6 million people, mainly in Denmark, and about 50,000 Danes in the northern parts of Schleswig-Holstein in Germany. It is also one of two official languages in Greenland, and commonly taught as a second language in Iceland.
There is a high degree of mutual intelligibility between the Scandinavian languages, especially so between Danish and Norwegian. Standard Danish is based on the language spoken in and around the capital, Copenhagen. Unlike Norwegian and Swedish, Danish has only one speech norm. More distinct regional dialects existed in the past, but have mostly disappeared.
In the past, Danish was written with a Runic alphabet, but switched to the Latin alphabet after the arrival of Christianity. The modern Danish alphabet is similar to the English alphabet, with the addition of three letters.
