Faeroese (føroyskt) is, together with Danish, the official language of the Faeroer. It is one of the most well-preserved languages in the world. The alphabet contains letters not found in the English alphabet, such as æ, ð and þ.

Of all the North Germanic languages, Faeroese is the closest to Old Norse, along with Icelandic. A speaker of modern Faeroese can read and understand the Old Norse sagas with little difficulty.
