I spent six months in Norway a year or two back. When there, I was
talking with a Dutch man who had moved there; he was telling me of a
talk he'd given to a Norwegian audience (academics all, all competent
in English) in which he'd joked that he could give the talk "in the
largest language in the world, English as spoken by foreigners, or the
smallest language in the world, Norwegian as spoken by foreigners".
