Norwegian Phrase /American-English Transcription/
I am posting these for use as a template by the other language administrators that are building the same lessons using this format.
If you live in Norway and see a mistake or a missing translation, please send me a Private Message (PM) and let me know what needs to be done.
Smoking is bad for your health
Do you mind if I smoke?
Do you have a light?
Can I have a cigarete?
Is this a non-smoking section?
May I have an ashtray?
When starting out you will frequently notice that the letters d, g, and h are often silent in Norwegian:
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.
