Is there any difference between Danish spoken in Denmark, and Danish spoken in Greenland?

There are not really Greenlandic dialects of Danish in the same way as there are different Danish dialects in 'Southern Denmark'. Danish in Greenland will be spoken either by Ethnic Danes who have moved to Greenland or by Greenlandic Inuits who will speak Danish as their second language and thus speak with a Greenlandic accent. And then of course by true billungual Greenlanders who might have an Ethnic Danish parrent and speak Danish accordingly

Yes, it varies even within Denmark (like in Bornholm there are five different kinds of dialects, and those would be different from the ones in Copenhagen).
