Who ever said this has never been to Bergen or the vestland
I remember a two week downpour while I was holed up in a cabin in Laerdal, Sognefjord. I think that I may have muttered this a few times,
What is the difference between using hele or alle?
You use "hele" for one whole thing (such as time), "begge" for two things (such as halves, like saying 'both' I guess) and "alle" for three or more things (such as apples).
Jeg ble solbrent i Bergen! (og søkkvåt, en annen gang...)
I love these references to popular culture
How about "Det kan ikke regne alle tiden"?
Could we say "alle tiden" instead of "hele tiden"? If not, why?
In Bergen, trust me, it can.
Also in Ketchekan, Alaska …
A week without rain and people start talking drought, while wondering what that bright yellow thing in the sky is.
What happened to all the comments about Bergen? Did they get "washed" away?
It can when you live in St.Petersburg.
Alaska or Russia?
I've been to St.Petersburg. It didn't rain one day.
I've been to St.Petersburg, Alaska, it rained almost non-stop.
It seems that all St.Petersburgs have similar weather :)
Yes, seems that way, but Alaska has dropped the St. in recent decades, because people got confused.
I Bergen det er mulig!
I though ei as a negation is only a literary remnant of Old Norse? How often is it used in common speech?
That would depend on the dialect, but "ikke" is indeed vastly more common.
Regardless of dialect you will still run into "ei" in some fixed phrases ("den gang ei", "tro det eller ei"), so it's good to be aware that it can function as a negation.
Feeling hopeful in Bergen.
does heltid just mean fulltime, and hele tiden is the whole time, and alltid is all the time yes
Someone's never been to Vancouver!
"I wish the rain would stop, just once..."
The sky won't fall foreeeeverrrr
'Det kan ikke regne alle tiden.'
Would be accepted? I'm on app so I could only choose the words order.
