why do you have so many dialects?

Well. It comes from a time before modern transport. Norway, as you know, has a shit ton of mountains and fjords. Theese mountains and fjords is what kept all the norwegian cities, villages and smaller towns apart. A lot of dialects have been influenced by visitors from other countries. Such as Denmark, Sweden and Germany. because of the distance between cities and towns, the language was shaped differently within all theese places. It was difficult for people to travel from place to place, so the way they spoke where you lived, would be the way you spoke yourself. People could have completely different dialects on either side of a fjord. Now, that modern transport exists, and a lot of people move in to the cities, a lot of dialects have died. (#prayfordialects). But still there are a lot of different dialects. Dialects in Norway is something a lot of norwegians care about, but for the sake of this post, I’ll save that part for later.

It is a thing I swear! If you google hestkuk it shows a few articles about it(all in norwegian tho sorry) becuse some guy was freed of charges in court or something

so if you are from northern norway you can call the police a horse cock and they can’t do anything about it because it’s a part of your culture

Is "Dyrene i Afrika" a nursery rhyme? It seems like there's no information on it on Wikipedia. And are the lyrics written in Bokmål?

Så vit jeg forsto det så er den ene penge siden pixler og den andre siden krussedullen. (De valgte å bruke to av forslagene de fikk) Tror ikke fuglen fikk være med, om det hjelper.

Jeg leste ett eller annet om at det var for oggjøre de tryggere, og vanskeligere å kopiere. Men vet ikke om det stemmer

I want to go to this exact point and run around it saying “I’m in Sweden!” I’m in Finland!” “I’m in Norway!” until I get tired
i aspire to great things in life

According to Google Maps, that point is in the middle of a small lake.

So we’ll do it in January when it’s frozen.

actually that’s why they’ve helpfully dropped a big-ass cement block with a bridge surrounding it in the middle of the lake: for the express purpose of doing what OP aspires to do


Awesome! Those forward-thinking Scandinavians!
