Yes, but Dutch pronounciation is said to be the funniest... not everyone speaks with a potato in the throat! And then i prefer Swedish orthography... ya know, I don't particularly like all those Æ's and Ø's : )

Old Norse... which I think is 99% the same as modern Icelandic. BTW, I heard that Faeroese affricatizes /k/ and /g/ to /tS/ and /dZ/. Is it true? Strange for a Germanic language.
