Introduction to Norwegian: 40

Great. Our next word to learn is also based on hvor too:

Norwegian for how is hvordan.

Literally wheredan, and just don’t ask me what dan means...

If you still recall, the Norwegian word for to do was å gjøre. How would you say:

  1. Remember that this is literally "how have you it?" The word "how" was "hvordan".
  2. This is "I have it good, thanks".
  3. You are saying "have it good", and using the word "bra" instead of "god". The imperative word for "have" is only two letters long, and comes from the infinitive form.
  4. Do you remember that "hi" was "hei"? Also, you are asking "how have you it?" (Remember that "how" was "hvordan".)
  5. You are saying "I have it good, thanks". Moreover, "morning" was "morgon".
  6. The same word order as in English. "From" was "fra", and where was "hvor".
  7. Norway was "Norge".
  8. Literally: "No, I speak not English."
  9. This sounds similar to "whatfor?"
  10. Your car comes with a bill, remember?
  11. Be careful to use "en" and "et" where appropriate.
  12. You will be saying "the car", thus add the right article to end the word.
  13. Use the word "være" for "be". Be careful as to whether you use "det" or "den".
  14. This is, remember, literally "have it good". Use the word "bra" for "good".
