Danglish

Danglish

Danglish is an unofficial language and informal term used to describe different combinations of British or American English and Danish:

  • English pronounced with a strong Danish accent.
  • Word-by-word translation between Danish and English so that the words belong to one language and the grammar and syntax to another.
  • A mixed language with words from both Danish and English either caused by poor proficiency in English or done deliberately for a comical effect.
  • An unofficial language spoken by all foreigners/exchange students that aren't completely fluent in Danish but are living in Denmark
