Abstract: "Love" translates a multitude of Danish words: the nouns 'Elskov', 'Forelskelse', 'Kjerlighed', 'Forkjerlighed', 'Gjenkjerlighed', 'Faderkjerlighed', 'Moderkjerlighed', 'Selvkjerlighed', and the verbs 'at elske', 'at opelske', and 'at fremelske'. The two principal noun forms, 'Elskov' and 'Kjerlighed', are often translated as "erotic love" and "love" respectively, but this represents a tendency only, as both can be used with and without erotic overtones. They are derived, respectively, from Old Norse 'elsk(h)ugi' (having love on the mind) and 'kærleikr' (warm inner feeling for another person).
