  • Land, þjóð og tunga – Even the second of these words isn’t quite as alien as you might think. It’s cognate with deutsch/Dutch/Teutonic. The origin is an Indo-European root meaning a group of people, a tribe. So ‘deutsch’ echoes an ancient sense of equivalence between nation and language; ‘we are the people (Wir sind das Volk!) and this is our language’.
