They are close in many ways:

SamSkandinavisk (Samska for short) is naturalistic a-posteriori auxlang based on the continental North Germanic languages (Danish, Norwegian, Swedish).

It is intended to be a tool for inter-Nordic communication and integration. It also is intended to be used as a tool for people from outside the Scandinavian region to communicate with Scandinavians -- as an alternative to learning one or all of the natural Scandinavian languages.

Samska includes complex grammatical features, but only when they are present in all of the source languages. It should theoretically be easier and more regular than any one of the natural Scandinavian languages.

The status of the language is currently under construction. There is a lexicon of approximately 3000 words available, but it still lacks many essential words for basic conversation.

But can you pick out the 'thankyou' words from Piraland's lovely post? I think Danish, Swedish and Norwegian are all there, but I'm not quite sure which is which.

It's a bit off-topic, but it would be nice to know if members spot their languages on that post, especially ones I haven't recognised.
Or anyone whose language is missing, we can add their 'thankyous' too! :)

Norwegian : 'takk' : green, corner right below.

Swedish : 'tack' : blue, above, in the middle, just above the Dutch 'dank je'.

But I fail to find the Danish 'tak'

Icelanders say 'tak' too, though 'Þakka' is more 'correct' - they made a pretty good job of replacing Danish with 'revived' Icelandic after they got independence in 1945, but it still creeps back!
