Stop Talking


Stop Talking

A very Scandinavian joke.

Swedes and Norwegians (and Icelanders) almost sound like they’re singing when they speak, while Danish is remarkable in that it has no accent at all. It’s very flat, not unlike German. Yet Danes are still somewhat understandable to Swedes and Norwegians, because Swedish, Norwegian and Danish are more or less the same language, so to them it sound like “Danes are speaking with a potato in their mouth”

But now the secret is out. We don't actually talk like that when we're alone. We only do it to annoy Swedes and Norwegians. :XD:

And yay! Norwegians making fun of the Danish language
And a Dane making fun of the Norwegian language (Danish without subtitles. Sorry)

I love that one of the "ugliest" and "plainest" languages in the world forms in my brain and rolls of my tongue completely naturally.

I never understood what my friends ment went they made fun of the danish language, and talked about how hard it was to understand. Somehow I never realised that I don't have a problem understanding Danes because my mother is from Denmark and at my Grandmothers house (Grandma also moved to Sweden) everybody, except me and my sisters spoke Danish. And Grandma only spoke Danish. I've heard and loved the language all my life, and since 13 years back (when my grandma passed away) I always get a warm feeling in the pit of my stomach when I hear Danish. Maybe that's why I love watching Danish movies and tv-shows (like Rejseholdet) every chance I get. :D
