Danish (dansk) is a North Germanic language spoken by around 14 million people, principally in Denmark and formally as the official language in former Danish colonies that have became Danish-speaking countries. There are also minor Danish-speaking communities outside Denmark worldwide. Due to immigration and language shift in urban areas, around 15–20% of the population of Greenland speak Danish as their home language.
