My Question or Issue

Hey

 

While adding lyrics to some tracks in Norwegian I came across some tracks which were maked as "Norwegian (Nynorsk)" which I found a bit odd as I was not aware of that the language tagger applied a distinction between nynorsk Norwegian and bokmål Norwegian (especially given that nynorsk and bokmål are written languages and that the spoken language isn't normalized).

 

Thus I was curious about if the language tagger distuinguish between "nynorsk Norwegian" and "bokmål Norwegian". So far I only found "nynorsk norwegian" tags and "Norwegian" tags, but no "bokmål norwegian" so I was curious about if there even was a separate "bokmål" tag, and if the language tags should be taken into account or be ignored when deciding which written language form should be prioritized when transcribing the lyrics for the song.
