Minority language:[1]

Danish (dansk, pronounced [dæˀnsɡ]  ( listen)) is a North Germanic language spoken by around 6 million people, principally in Denmark. It is also spoken by 50,000 Danes in the northern parts of Schleswig-Holstein, Germany, where it holds the status of minority language.[2] Danish is a mandatory subject in school in the Danish territories of the Faroe Islands (where it is also an official language) and Greenland, as well as the former crown holding of Iceland. There are also Danish language communities in Argentina, the U.S. and Canada. The southern Swedish dialects of Scanian, Hallandic and Blekingian can also be considered dialects of Danish from a linguistic point of view[citation needed].
