Bokmål (UK: /ˈbuːkmɔːl/, US: /ˈbʊk-, ˈboʊk-/; lit. 'book language') is one of two official written forms of Norwegian; the other is Nynorsk. Bokmål is used by 85-90% of the population in Norway and the usual way to teach to foreign students.
Bokmål is regulated by the government's Norwegian Language Council. A more conservative orthographic standard is called Riksmål, which is regulated by the non-governmental Norwegian Academy for Language and Literature.
