Norwegian is a North Germanic language spoken primarily in Norway by about 4.7 million people. It is more or less mutually intelligible with Swedish and Danish. There are two official forms of written Norwegian: Bokmål (literally "book language") and Nynorsk (literally "new Norwegian"). Bokmål is the form generally used in public media and taught to foreign students. It is based on the language spoken by the urban upper and middle class in East Norway, whereas Nynorsk is based on the dialects and is more common in rural areas. However, a lot of people that use Nynorsk are educated people with an affinity for traditions and culture. They claim that Nynorsk is a richer language which represents more the real Norwegian language, as opposed to Bokmål which is based on Danish. Since most public media is in Bokmål, most people find it easier to learn: a 2005 poll indicates that 86.3% of Norwegians use primarily Bokmål as their daily written language, whereas 7.5% use primarily Nynorsk, and 5.5% use both. Bokmål is used in 92% of all written publications and Nynorsk in only 8%, but all governmental agencies are required to support both written languages.
