"Norwegian Bokmål" and "Norwegian Nynorsk"
on 13 January 2010
I got two copy's of this book one for myself, because I was going to work in Norway & one for my mum who likes to learn European languages (forth one). This book is Nynorsk (literally "new Norwegian"), not Bokmål (literally "book language"). at no point on Amazon does it state which language this book is written in. See quote from Norwegian web site***.
***About 86.2% of the pupils in secondary schools in Norway receive education in Bokmål, while about 13.8% receive education in Nynorsk. Of 4,549 state publications in 2006 8% were in Nynorsk, and 92% in Bokmål. The large national newspapers (Aftenposten, Dagbladet and VG) are published in Bokmål.***
I like the format, shame its not bokmål.
