The rudest language on Earth
Danish - The rudest language on Earth
In Denmark in the 1950' s and 60' s,
when the youth was rebelling, people
thought they were going to lose
touch with the younger generation,
so the entire Danish language was
revised. This resulted in that the
language today sounds incredibly
rude to foreigners. The reason for this
is we removed all formal titles from
our language. No "sir", "madara", "miss",
or anything of the sort. Everytime we
talk to someone, we speak as we
would to a friend, or an acquaintance,
by speaking directly to eachother,
instead of using a lot of" chitchat".
This is what I love most about it, that
no one needs to feel inadequate
when speaking to someone. No one
are called Dr. somethingsomething,
and everyone is on a first name basis
with oneanother. In fact, the only
ones not normally referred to by their
first name, is the Royal Family.
This was my first post about my country and it' s quirks.
