An unknown variety
This chapter provides a descriptive profile of Faroe Danish, the variety of Danish spoken and written on the Faroe Islands. Faroe Danish is not only a variety unknown to most linguists but also unknown to the speakers of Faroe Danish themselves. This paper provides a communicative profile and a structural outline of Faroe Danish as it exists today.
Keywords: Danish, Faroe Danish, Faroese, language contact, postcolonial variety
