Example text

Still, that year, 1860, marks the commencement of the involvement of the Parliament and the government in the endeavour to solve the linguistic problems of the new nation. From that time onwards, language planning (understood as norm regulation) has been treated as a political matter to a higher degree in Norway than in any other western country. In 1862, the very first spelling reform of Dano-Norwegian was issued as a governmental decree. e. the Ministry of Church and Education) or Parliament issued several edicts on what kind of spelling was to be used in schools.

The language spoken by the educated upper classes in formal situations was some sort of spelling pronunciation of written Danish. Danish was the written medium in schools, spoken Danish, of course, being Norwegianized through pronunciation, though many teachers used a spelling pronunciation. Informal speech in the upper classes was a kind of compromise between the standard used in formal situations and the local dialects. During the first decades after independence was won from Denmark in 1814, there was an increasing feeling in favor of establishing a national Norwegian language.
