Icelandic Language

September 25, 2016

There are only 350,000 speakers of Icelandic in the world.

Interestingly, the language has survived untouched since the Middle Ages. It was not named as the official language of Iceland until 2011. Icelandic is so pure that they had to invent different words, such as “computer”. They didn’t want to adopt foreign words, and since there was not a word for “computer” in the Middle Ages, they made a combination of the word “number” and the word “witch,” and got the Icelandic word for a computer: “tölva”.
