Frisian (Frysk) is a Germanic group of closely related languages, spoken by about half a million members of an ethnic group living on the southern fringes of the North Sea in the Netherlands and Germany. Frisian and Scots are the two living European languages that are most closely related to English. Although English and Frisian are unintelligible to each other, there are similarities to both Dutch and Danish, whose speakers are able to understand some spoken Frisian.
