Danish Discussion Thread

I noticed that the Danish forum didn't have a dedicated general discussion thread. So, if you have any questions about Danish, or you just want to talk about it, then this is the place for you.

Too bad that danish section is pretty dead :-( Compared to norwegian or swedish. How to change this?

Maybe by making it easier to find information. Like specific threads for discussion, links, culture, etc.

But there are no active people here on this thread for Danish. Danish is probably less attractive than other nordic languages.

Danish's relative attractiveness is irrelevant. There are obviously many people learning the language regardless. I just think that having a more organised forum (cf. the Norwegian forum) is much more inviting to learners looking for help.

I'm aware of the fact that the Danish forum isn't very active, but activity can be encouraged with threads like this.

Mente du "Jeg har brug for..."? Jeg er kun nysgerrig.

Jeg kan allerede svensk og jeg altid var interesserede at lære dansk fordi jeg er lyttet til dansk musik i lang tid.

Jeg er klar til at hjælpe dig når jeg kan, selv om hold dig før øje, at jeg stadig er også ved at lære dansk, altså kan jeg lige hjælpe dig efter min bedste overbevisning, og derefter venter vi på en mødersaltalmare.

Held og lykke med at lære dansk! :)

Hello. Is there a Danish course that uses (preferrably narrow) IPA, or at least Dania? In case of this language text with recordings is not enough :lol:

I have two Danish textbooks that use IPA, though unfortunately they lack recordings.

Is that old version of Teach Yourself Danish any good? I have the second book you mention, but I feel it's a bit dense at times. Still, it's better than most Danish learning books out there...

I like the old Teach Yourself Danish, but it can also be quite dense. Unlike the Elementary Grammar and Reader, TY has a consistant plot throughout similar to modern TYs, but here the grammar is explained in depth. Making it easier to follow.

And btw, the Danish course is in beta on Duolingo, if anyone's interested. 8-)

I just bought the 1973 edition earlier this week. Finally some IPA! :bounce:
I'm enjoying it so far!

Ja, men jeg tror at alle andre venter på, at nogen anden skaber et nyt diskussionsemne.

For nogle måneder siden begyndte jeg et masterstudium i skandinavistik--med fokus på dansk, naturligvis. Biblioteket på instituttet er som en drøm--jeg kunne blive der hele dagen--men desværre lukker det kl. 19 på hverdage, og har slet ikke åbent på weekenderne.

I den seneste tid har jeg begyndt at læse denne bog, som handler om indflydelsen af dansk på færøske, og på indflydelsen af færøske på den form a dansk, som bliver talt på Færøerne. Det er faktisk en meget interessant emne, og en som man virkelig kun kan undersøge ved en undersøgelse af talesproget, fordi skrevet færøsk plejer at være meget konservativere en den talesprog. Autoren taler om en medicinsk bog på færøsk, som er faktisk lidt værdiløs, fordi det indeholder så mange ikke-udbredte neologismer, at patienten ville være længst død, før man har dechifreret det, som bogen vil sige. Meget praktisk.

(Jeg må dog sige, at bogen indeholder en forfærdelige høje antal af skrivefejl--ikke kun i den engelske tekst (som vi kan undskylde, fordi autoren ikke er en indfødte engelsktaler), men også i den danske (jeg ved ikke, og der befinder sig også nogle fejl under den færøske tekst...) Jeg tror i hvert fald, at forlaget har brug for en ny korrekturlæser...)

Det har faktisk opvækket en stor interesse for færøsk og Færøerne hos mig--men desværre er der åbenbart ikke så mange ressourcer, for at lære sig sproget (selv i det skandinaviske bibliotek). Men jeg vil egentlig tilbringe et semester i København næste år, hvis jeg kan--og det er faktisk en af de få steder uden for Færøerne, hvor man kan finde en kursus på færøsk. Derfor ville det måske ikke kun være godt for mit danske at tilbringe en semester der--hvis det lykkes mig at gøre det, naturligvis...
