Norwegian Phrase /American-English Transcription/
Land (English meaning: Land) [Phonetic: /LAHN/]
Viktig (English meaning: Important) [Phonetic: /VEEK-TEE/, to my ear the K is rather soft and I sometimes hear it as if it is /VEEG-TEE/]
Hva (English menaing: What) [Phonetic: /VAH/]
Each vowel (a, e, i, o, u, y, æ, ø, å) in a stressed syllable is either long (about three times longer than you are in the habit of holding it) or very short.

You are welcome,
I am going to add a couple additional phonetic ways you may hear a letter of the alphabet spoken. Norway has lots of dialect variations so you may also see
Also, if you have trouble with
r /AER/ then just think of the Enlgish word AIR and you will get the AE vowel pronounced well.
