What is the difference between Bokmal and Nynorsk Norwegian?

These are both commonly used variants of Norwegian. Bokmal is called 'Book Language' and is the most common written form. Nynorsk is 'new Norwegian'. There is no single sanctioned form of the Norwegian 'language'. One analogy is these two forms are akin to US and British forms of English - mutually understood (most of the time!!) but with characteristic differences.
