Quick Useful Phrases and Words


Recommended Posts

Certainly, these are useful. It's true that most of these are non sentences, but still, this is something used extensively in everyday speech, so I believed it should be included here. All corrections and additions to this list are, of course, accepted:

Good Bra

Bad Dårlig

Big Stor

Small Liten

Today I dag

Now Nå

Tomorrow I morgen

Yesterday I går

Yes Ja

No Nei

Fast Fort

Slow Sakte

Hot Varm

Cold Kald

This Dette

That Det

Here Her

There Der

Really? Virkelig?

Look! Se!

Sorry! / Pardon me! Beklager!

Sorry Unnskyld!

No problem! Ikke noe problem!

And now the wh-questions, or in this case, the hv- questions, or so it seems:

What? Hva?

Where? Hvor?

Who? Hvem?

How? Hvordan?

When? Når?

Why? Hvorfor?

Yes , but sometimes this is not right either, even though you can translate the words, the maening des not always correlate.

Slow - can be translated sakte , sen / treg .

He is always slow =  Han er alltid sen /treg. Someone is slow.

He is always late ( as in arriving later that scheduled) = Han er alltid sen ( han er alltid sent ute).

It goes really slow today= Det går veldig tregt idag/ Det går veldig sakte i dag. (the colloquial form is tregt) Something is slow

Thank you for pointing these things out. As I'd said before, I do not speak Norwegian, I am only trying to help. You can also modify all of my posts - I do not mind. Correct whatever you think needs correcting, erase whatever you feel needs to be erased...

After all, both of us have only one thing in mind - help people study the languages. I would love to hear your opinions on all the posts! so, once more, please, feel free to correct any of my mistakes, be they common or not.
