    nynorsk (translates to "new norwegian")[6] is one of the two written standards of the norwegian language, the other being bokmål. nynorsk was established in 1929 as one of two state-sanctioned fusions of ivar aasen's standard norwegian language (norwegian: landsmål) with the dano-norwegian written language (riksmål), the other such fusion being called bokmål. nynorsk is a variation which is closer to landsmål, whereas bokmål is closer to riksmål.

    in local communities, one quarter of norwegian municipalities have declared nynorsk as their official language form, and these municipalities account for about 12% of the norwegian population. nynorsk is also taught as a mandatory subject in both high school and elementary school for all norwegians who do not have it as their own language form.[7] of the remaining municipalities that do not have nynorsk as their official language form, half are neutral and half have adopted bokmål as their official language form.[8]

    four of norway's eighteen counties, rogaland, hordaland, sogn og fjordane and møre og romsdal, have nynorsk as their official language form. these four together comprise the region of western norway.[9]

Nynorsk (translates to "New Norwegian")[6] is one of the two written standards of the Norwegian language, the other being Bokmål. Nynorsk was established in 1929 as one of two state-sanctioned fusions of Ivar Aasen's standard Norwegian language (Norwegian: Landsmål) with the Dano-Norwegian written language (Riksmål), the other such fusion being called Bokmål. Nynorsk is a variation which is closer to Landsmål, whereas Bokmål is closer to Riksmål.

In local communities, one quarter of Norwegian municipalities have declared Nynorsk as their official language form, and these municipalities account for about 12% of the Norwegian population. Nynorsk is also taught as a mandatory subject in both high school and elementary school for all Norwegians who do not have it as their own language form.[7] Of the remaining municipalities that do not have Nynorsk as their official language form, half are neutral and half have adopted Bokmål as their official language form.[8]

Four of Norway's eighteen counties, Rogaland, Hordaland, Sogn og Fjordane and Møre og Romsdal, have Nynorsk as their official language form. These four together comprise the region of Western Norway.[9]
