Vad heter vulkanen?

Vad heter vulkanen? by TV4

The name of the volcano of the Iceland southern part, Eyjafjallajökull [ˈɛɪjaˌfjatlaˌjœːkʏtl̥] that erupted on April 17, 2010 became the topic. As for the name, pronunciation is very difficult. The Icelandic belongs to North Germanic languages with Swedish. The Icelander are descendants of the people whom they emigrated to from Norway. Therefore, it is said that the Icelandic is almost Old Norwegian.

Does it mean that Norwegian and near Swedish have difficulty with pronunciation again? Fortunately, modern Swedish is simplified. However, it does not mean that the acquisition is an easy language for a Japanese.
