The Faroese language already has 29 letters, but a politician from the island group is campaigning to have five more officially added: C, Q, W, X, and Z. The politician, from the Social Democratic Party, thinks that the move will make it easier to write in the Faroese language about world affairs, such as events in Chile (currently spelled with a K). The Tjóðveldi (which means Republic) party, however, thinks that such a move is unnecessary, since speakers of Faroese have long got used to adapting foreign words, and the language can cope as it is currently.
The Faroese language, spoken in the Faroese, islands that form part of Denmark that are situated about 200 miles north of Scotland, is descended from Old Norse. It is similar to the extinct language of Norn, once spoken in Orkney and Shetland.
