Urban East Norwegian (UEN) or Standard East Norwegian (Bokmål: standard østnorsk, Urban East Norwegian: [ˈstɑndɑɖ ²œstnɔʂk]; Nynorsk: standard austnorsk) is the de facto standard variety of East Norwegian and an unofficial spoken standard of Bokmål in Eastern Norway. It is often used in news readings on radio and television,[citation needed] and it is also the variety of Norwegian that is most commonly taught to foreign students.[1]
