About Icelandic Language Day
Iceland Language Day is observed on November 16th of every year. This date was chosen to coincide with the birthday of the Icelandic poet Jonas Hallgrímsson. The Minister of Education awards the Jonas Hallgrímsson Award to someone who has “in a unique way contributed to the Icelandic language”. Icelandic is an Indo-European language belonging to the North Germanic branch of the Germanic languages. Icelandic language may be said to date from the translation of the New Testament in 1540 by Oddur Gottskalksson.
