Hei Ole! Velkommen til oss!

Hi Ole! Welcome to us.

Hi Ole! Welcome to our place!


Takk!

Thanks!

Thanks!


Her har vi øl, vin og brus.

Here have we bier, wine and soft drinks.

Here we have bier, wine and soft drinks.

You can not always see the gender of nouns only by looking at the text. But we can tell the gender here instead. From now on, we will use (m) the denote a masculine noun, (f) for feminine, and (n) for neuter.

«øl» (m)
«vin» (m)
«brus» (m)

Det er berre å forsyne seg.

It is just to supply yourself.

Just help yourself.

«Seg» can mean «myself», «yourself», «themselves» and so on. I does not change depending on gender or number.

Vi har også sjokolade, potetgull, og ein Grandiosa i ovnen!

We have also chocolate, potato chips, and a Pizza Grandiosa in the oven!

We also have chocolate, potato chips, and a pizza in the oven!

«sjokolade» (m)
«potetgull» (n)

Potetgull is a compound word, consisting of «potet» = «potato» and «gull» = «gold». In compund words, only the last part will determine the gender of the whole word. «Potetgull» is neuter because «gull» is neuter, even though «potet» is masculine.

«Grandiosa» is the name of a very popular Norwegian pizza. It's especially popular among students.

Er pizzaen snart ferdig?

Is the pizza soon finished?

Is the pizza finished soon?


Eg veit ikkje. Eg skal spørje.

I know not. I shall ask.

I don't know. I will ask.

«Ikkje» means «not».

In this word we again have the difficult «kj» sound. «Kkj» is pronounced similar to «kj», but because of the double consonant you know that the «i» before should be short.

Nei, han er ikkje ferdig heilt enno.

No, he is not finished completely yet.

No, it is not finished yet.

Note that we use the pronoun «han» to refer to «pizzaen», because «pizza» is a masculine noun.

Ferdig om ti minutt!

Finished in ten minutes!

It's finished in ten minutes!

«minutt» (n)

Imens kan vi kose oss med litt brettspel!

Meanwhile can we enjoy us with a little board games.

Meanwhile we can enjoy some board games!

«brettspel» (n)

Kult. Ingen fest utan brettspel!

Cool. None party without board games!

Cool. No party without board games!

«fest» (m)

Eg set også litt musikk.

I put also on a little music.

I'll turn on some music too.

«musikk» (m)

Når vi blir litt fullare, skal vi danse og synge karaoke!

When we become a little more drunk, shall we dance and sing karaoke!

When we get a little more drunk, we will dance and sing karaoke!

«Karaoke» is not pronounced the same way as in English. Instead, you use the standard Norwegian pronunciation rules for all the letters.

Vil du synge eller danse?

Will you sing or dance?

Would you like to sing or dance?
