Hello everyone! Today, my friend Christina of Stiina Marie is back to teach us some fall words and phrases used in Norway. If you recall, Christina guest blogged on lifewithlilred a few weeks ago and has been kind enough to return to teach us some more of a new language. As you all know, I personally love to learn different languages, so this post is right up my alley! Thank you so much, Christina! xx
Fall Words – Høst Ord
Today, I am going to teach you various words pertaining to fall that are in Bokmål – the main language of Norway. Read the pronunciation in italics as it would be in English.
There is a slight “R” roll in Bokmål. This is similar to Spanish. To properly learn Norwegian, this exercise is a great start! Try listening to Norwegian movies and music that are already familiar to you. Disney movies are almost always a hit!
Words to Practice:
Rain = REGN reh-gin
Storm = STORM storm
Cloudy = OVERSKYET ohver-sheeyet
Cold = KJØLIG cher-leeg
Sweater = GENSER gehn-ser
Hoodie = HETTEGENSER heht-teh-gehn-ser
