- Apprendre le norvégien
The Norwegian alphabet has 29 letters, 3 more vowels than in French: the “æ”, “å” and “ø”.
The “o” are pronounced [o] in front of two consonants and [u] or [or] in front of one consonant, the “e” are pronounced [a], some “y” are pronounced [or] too.
Sometimes we don’t pronounce certain consonants in the middle or end of the word.
Well, some difficulties then!
There are 3 official languages: bokmål, nynorsk and sámi, and more than 100 different dialects.
In fact, there are ways of speaking and specific words in each region.
A dialect is not just an accent, they use different words and Norwegian is a tonal language.
Sometimes even native Norwegians find it difficult to understand each other because of dialects.
