Nynorsk (New Norwegian) is one of the two official written standards of Norwegian; the other is Bokmål. It is based on Norwegian dialects and is especially common around Bergen. Ivar Aasen created it during the 19th century as a Norwegian alternative to Danish upon which it is based. Danish was then often written in Norway.
