By the 18 th century was formed Danish modern literary language, based which was put zealand dialect. In Danish nouns can be singular and plural articles are definite and indefinite as a separate word, and can occur in of the word. Adjectives do not have a declination, but may be consistent in the number and kind of defined the word. With regard to personal pronouns, they have two cases: subject and object, and their forms, which were genitive of a third party used only as a possessive pronoun. Verbs in Danish are eight temporary forms, two of which are simple, and six – difficult. Mortgages exist Passive and valid and have the analytical and the inflected form. Also, there are three moods of verbs: the subjunctive, imperative and indicative.
Proposals have in their composition subject and predicate. Formation of words in Danish are using suffixes (nouns and adjectives), prefixes (nouns and verbs). There is also a noun and verb compounding. Quite easily form words denoting a completely new concept. Writing of the Danish language was formed on the basis of Latin, having incorporated a few extra letters. As already mentioned, the first monument of the Danish script were runes, and in later manuscripts have already used the Latin alphabet (13-14 centuries). The first printed edition of the Danish language was published in 1495.
To date, a serious threat to the Danish language is its globalization. According to Delfi one of the six books published in Denmark, published in English. English is increasingly part of everyday life of the Danes, gradually displacing the Danish language. And this is, at least, exhilarating factor. Several Danish companies use English, advertising products are increasingly supplied in English, a growing number of schools provide training in that language, as well as scientific papers prefer to publish on English. In Denmark there is a Council for Danish language. And lately, more and more acutely the question of the threat of extinction in Danish. Council members have suggested that if there will be nothing done to protect and conservation of the Danish language, then in 20-30 years it could disappear altogether and go into a "extinct" languages. Prevent such a turn of events is impossible, since any language, including Danish – is not only a means of communication, but also historical and cultural heritage of the nation.
