Introduction to Norwegian:
Lesson 39

We have a lot of words based on hvor. For example, the Norwegian word for why is literally wherefor.

Norwegian for why is hvorfor.

It kind of makes sense because, in English, therefore means because, so wherefore should mean why?. Although, to me it sounds more like what for.
