- people speak nynorsk in bergen?

umm my question is: like what area of norway speaks nynorsk? like cities, etc. for example: olso to bergen to alesund is where they speak nynorsk. (i don't think they do but it was just an example)

- Here is a map showing the districts chosen written language. But be aware, I live in a nynorsk district ( that means that all the official papers in that district should be written in nynorsk, and there are some elementary schools teaching nynorsk, but the biggest ones teaches us bokmål. In junior high, you can choose yourself. I have bokmål, as I have always had :)

well, just like bokmål, very few people speak "correct" nynorsk.. nynorsk is a "made up language" mixed together of many different dialects some time ago (don't remember when) by a man called ivar aasen. but the dialects are mostly from the western parts, with some inspiration from older norwegian. nynorsk is more common outside of the cities, and kids in oslo are angry because they have to learn nynorsk in school :p (oslo is a bokmål place :p)

- Is it used in any area to have a soft 'd' (as in Icelandic or Danish) in some Nynorsk words (such as det, der, osv.?)

- Don`t really know what you mean by this question. When it comes to words as "det, der" there is no hard or soft d. No difference between nynorsk og bokmål there.

- i think the question might refer to the sound at the end of words like "ved" eller "med".

as far as i've seen, the only differences between baakmal and nynorsk are the spellings of some words and the pronunciations of a very few, but no actual grammatical or phonological differences.

- Eg lurte bare på (sida eg har fått ein så grusom sidemålskarakter) om du viste av nokre gode nynorsk-forfattera? (Har allerede Kalvø)
