Faroese Sighting!

Yesterday I was initiated into Alpha Mu Gamma, a language honors society here, and this poster was in the room. (I hope it isn't secret, because now I've photographed it and put it on the internet... XD). As normal for such poster, it said 'Hello!' (or Good Day...) in a number of languages. The Finnish one, Hyvää Päivää, first attracted my attention, because, well, it's very noticeable! Then I was astonished to see Góðan Dag also listed! (It is right below Konnichi Wa) This is the Faroese word for Good Day, and on a poster which only listed about 25 languages, I was thrilled to find it!

Føroysk eygbering!

Í gjár kom eg uppí Alpha Mu Gamma, eitt málsligt ærusamfelag her, og hendan plansjan/plakatin var í rúminum. (Eg vóni/hopi, at hon ikki er loyndarfull, tí nú havi eg tikið mynd av henni, og lagt hana út á netið... XD). Sum vanligt fyri slíkar plansjur, so segði honn "Halló!" (ella Góðan Dagin...) á eini rekkju av ymiskum tungumálum. Tað finnlendska, Hyvää Päivää, fekk fyrst minahuga, tí at, eh.. tað er nokkso lætt at fáa eyga á! So var er yvirraskað av eisini at síggja Góðan Dag á har! Eg var ovurfegin av at síggja tað á eini plansju/plakat vi einum 25 tungumálum á!
