1 Additional Answer

Iceland.Is explains on its website that Icelandic is one of the North Germanic languages, similar to Norwegian and Faroese, which is spoken in the Faroe Islands halfway between Norway and Iceland. Foreign languages have had little influence on Icelandic, so it remains much the same after centuries of use. Writing from the 12th century is easily readable by modern Icelanders. Unlike many languages that add foreign words and phrases to their vocabularies, Icelandic speakers develop original words or recycle old terms and apply new definitions.
