Translation and interpretation of the love poem into Faroese tórshavn (Faeroese, føroyskt mál), a language of the Germanic languages group, of the Indo-European languages family. Close to the Icelandic, the Faroese has retained traits of the old Nordic. The Faroese language is spoken in the Faroe Islands (Denmark) by 70,000 people; islands, which are are halfway between Iceland and Norway. The written language was established in the 19th century. Since the 20th century, Faroese has gradually gained its place alongside Danish, and this in all areas of social life. Old Norse, Icelandic and Faroese are very similar.
