"I am Norwegian."
Translation:Jeg er norsk.
If I was Norwegian I would not be learning Norwegian! Oh well it is just a sentence to learn.
This is to better recognize the sentence if you ever heard a Norwegian say it.
Also, is nordmann used of men only? So if there are women in a group of Norwegians you are referring to, would you still use this word?
Fveldig has already told me that nordmann (and the plural nordmenn) can be used for either gender.
Not really, and this is because of internal sandhi and r coming before s which causes a retroflex change in both sounds. This means that r transforms into the retroflex approximant "ɻ" which is eventually dropped and s into the voiceless retroflex fricative "ʂ".
Therefore, the correct IPA pronunciation is
Is norsk pronounced like 'nårsk'? Seems like the 'o' is not the 'oo' sound it should be.
å is pronounced as
/ɔː/ while norsk is pronounced as
Notice the difference in length of the open-mid back rounded vowel denoted with a colon.
P.S. There is a duplicate of your question.
