I had to look up cecear.   But yes dingleberry, I do prefer your way of expressing it.  10^3 thanks!

I can kinda follow Norwegian and Swedish speakers.

But Icelandic is very hard for me to follow.  Reminds me of how Spaniards slur their words with that strong 'th' sound.
 
For those with a Netflix account, I highly recommend the Icelandic television series "Trapped".

Norwegian is actually a pretty easy language for an English speaker to learn (easier than Swedish which, contra Bill, Ane Brun is not singing here).

As a whirlwind
Who comes to take me with
Coming to take me me

As a lava flow
That comes to drag me me
Coming to drag me me

Nothing can hold me back
Nothing can stop me
We e free

A warm inside us
Whoever love life
A flame of life

Can melt ice for water
lit as we locate
Can make a stone wall for sand

No nothing can hold me back
Nothing can stop me
We e free

No nothing can hold me back
Nothing can stop me
We e free

No nothing can hold me back
Nothing can stop me
We e free

Oh, no, nothing can hold me back
Nothing can stop me
We e free

No nothing can hold me back
Nothing can stop me
We e free

Oh, no, nothing can hold me back
Nothing can stop me
We e free
We e free

That makes sense. It sounds very similar too. I find Dutch to be (from my perspective of course) a bit of a mix of Norwegian/Swedish, German and English. At least that's how I make sense of it... :) But then our languages are all closely related, so we're all a mix of each other I suppose.

Dialectic, from her hometown of Molde. Although I believe they would write in nynorsk. :)

Strictly speaking the Finnish are not Scandinavian at all, but rather Nordic, which is a larger group of countries that of course also includes the three Scandinavian countries (Norway, Sweden and Denmark). A common mistake though.

But if you really want to learn to speak more like the old Vikings consider Icelandic. It's still very close to old Norse!

I once took a pottery class with two Danish women and a Swedish woman. They would start talking in...I have no idea across the room and the rest of us would switch our eyes from one speaker to another like we were watching space aliens playing tennis. They were pretty cool about it and echoed your statement that they Scandinavians can talk to each other pretty readily. And yes, their command of English was excellent although they all had slight accents. Very nice people too. 

But it's hard for me to empathize when I hear Swedish spoken in love or anger, say in a Bergman film. That passion gets lost and the actors just sound goofy.
