The adjective and derived noun Dano-Norwegian means "Danish and Norwegian". It can have two related meanings:

  1. It can refer to the former (1536-1814) union between Denmark and Norway or its people; or by extension to anything relating to both of its two titular composite countries, Denmark and Norway (see Dano-Norwegian)
  2. It can refer to the Dano-Norwegian language, formerly a Norwegian variant of the Danish language and predecessor of the Bokmål written standard of the modern Norwegian language. (Cf. Gøtudanskt)
