Why marriage is a poisonous trap in Norway

Reklamer

Should you learn Swedish, then? Or Icelandic?

 

Morale: Swedes use strange words (fönster, trottoir, örngott, fåtölj) and  even letters (ö, ä for ø, æ). Norwegians understand Swedes and Danes better than vice versa. Norwegian is Danish with Swedish-ish accent. Norwegian is even makes you understand quite a bit of Icelandic.

There. Case closed. Next time: Bokmål or Nynorsk?
