Tyssedal is a village in Odda municipality in Hordaland county, Norway. The village is located on the shore of the Sørfjorden about north of the town of Odda. Tyssedal is located in a charming environment in a valley between the fjord to the west and the mountains leading up to the vast Hardangervidda mountain plateau to the east.Tyssedal is a typical monotown, depending upon the energy received from the hydropower station. The ilmenite smelter "Tinfos Titan and Iron" (TTI) (owned by Tinfos) is located here and it is the largest employer in the village. The smelter was converted from making aluminium in the late 1980s. The first hydropower station in Tyssedal, Tysso I, is today part of the Norwegian Museum of Hydropower and Industry.The 0.62km2 village has a population (2013) of 692, giving the village a population density of. Tyssedal Church is located in this village. The lake Ringedalsvatnet and the Trolltunga cliff are located just to the east, higher up in the valley.LanguageTyssedal grew up around this smelter in the early-twentieth century, drawing migrants from different parts of Norway, all of whom spoke Norwegian, but each area of Norway has its own dialect. As a result, there developed a new dialect in Tyssedal, a mixture of that spoken in the home regions of the migrants; a phenomenon termed by linguists "a Koiné language". Tyssedal and the nearby town of Odda—which arose in the same time and socio-economic circumstances as those of Tyssedal—provided valuable insights to linguists studying this phenomenon.
