THE SCANDINAVIAN LETTERS

Æ Ø Å are the extra 3 characters we Norwegians & Danish have at the end of our alphabet, and I always love hearing foregners trying to pronounce them as they appears quite regularly in our language. In Swedish they change them up slightly and have Å Ä Ö instead.

What do all you non-Scandinavians think of these weird characters?

As a Norwegian I like seeing them pop up on different design items, it adds a bit extra and is to me visually pleasing to the eye. Here are some designs I have collated with various of these characters on;
