Norse or Old Norse is a language of ancient Scandinavia from which the modern North Germanic languages are descended. Danish, Icelandic, Faroese, Norwegian, and Swedish are all descended from Norse.

However, Norse is hardly extinct. In Way North, for example, Norse is still one of the two official languages. The Old Norse language still plays an important part in the life of many nations or provinces which have a Scandinavian cultural orientation, although this part is as often one of ceremonial use as it is one where Old Norse remains the language of everyday use.
