ABOUT THE LANGUAGE Danish courses in Seattle
Danish is clearly the Scandinavian language that has undergone the greatest amount of change away from Old Scandinavian. During the Middle Ages it lost the old case system; merged the masculine and feminine genders into one common gender; and acquired many Low German words, prefixes, and suffixes from contact with the traders of the Hanseatic League.
In the 18th century a mildly puristic reform led to the replacement of many French loans by their native equivalents. So, in the 18th and 19th centuries, Danish became the vehicle of a classical literature. Modern Danish has only two cases (nominative and genitive) and two genders (common and neuter).
The most outstanding feature of its sound system is the glottal stop (stød), derived from what was originally a tonal accent. Finally, a spelling reform in 1948 eliminated the capitalization of nouns and introduced the letter å for aa; thereby making the spelling more similar to that of Norwegian and Swedish. Talk and Chalk
