Fact of the day: Norwegian is actually a tonal language similar to many Nigerian languages such as Edo and Yoruba (though it is not as reliant on these tones to make yourself clear as these other two languages). However, tonal markings are absent in writing. You already have an advantage if you speak your native tongue.

Norweigian is a nordic language, much like Danish and Swedish. It was one of the vast languages spoken in the Viking lands in the olden days.

Typo ^^

Appreciate the correction, but apart from the "other" part, hence referring to related languages by mistake, it is correct.

Sorry did not mean to come off as arrogant if I did.

Please keep this thread clean. There's already another thread for study inquiries, this is for learning the language. (Any chance you could unlock my post above Fulaman198 ?)

Online resources are probably your best bet. If you have a big dataplan you can watch Youtube videos for more effective learning, if not I suggest following this thread and utilizing other sources such as NTNU's course: http://www.ntnu.edu/now/intro

@ Ozat. I sent you an e-mail yesterday.

Nouns (substantiv)

Nouns in Norwegian are conjugated into four basic forms. Definite singular, definite plural, indefinite singular and indefinite plural. In addition, Norwegian also employs genders (neuter, masculine and feminine), these forms also needs to be in agreement with their respective artricles. There's also quite a few exceptions to the conjugation pattern.

Masculine
En gutt - a boy
Gutten - the boy
Gutter - boys
Guttene - the boys

Feminine
Ei jente - a girl
Jenta - the girl
Jenter - girls
Jentene - the girls

Neuter
Et dyr - an animal
Dyret - the animal
Dyr- animals
Dyrene - the animals
