Yeah, the book says that c, q, w, x and z aren't native. Wikipedia elaborates on the pronunciation of ɾ and ʋ -- which my book kinda' fails to do IMO xP The ɾ is a flapped R, which you're supposedly more likely to hear in east Oslo dialects, again, according to this book (published in 1983, so who really knows =P) The ʋ is basically like a cross between English V and W. It's like the voiced form of the Japanese F, if that helps anyone lol Søsteren min snakker Japansk flytende og jeg er åpenbart veldig sjalu x/
I think 'v' is closer to the English 'v' than 'w', but I guess ʋ is good enough. I don't think the 'r' has changed in Eastern Norwegian, so ɾ is probably right too.
Also you just made a small mistake in your last sentence, which is impressive :) > Japansk->japansk.
Although the first version is more common, yours is correct too:
"Hun snakker flytende japansk": 'flytende' is an adjective
"Hun snakker japansk flytende": 'flyende' is an adverb
Aww pokker lol Thanks, man. I forgot that you're not supposed to capitalize languages in Norwegian xD By the way, does that extend to any other groups of proper nouns that would otherwise be capitalized in English? I read something about titles -- you only capitalize the first word, I guess? I dunno if they meant like, official titles or film titles or whatever. Still got a lot to learn.
I immediately think of this: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/95/Making_eggs_in_basket.jpg
I see that you posted this a month ago, but in case you haven't learned yet and are still wondering: "Eggs in a basket" (besides the literal meaning) is also a prepared food item in which an egg is cracked into a hole within a piece of bread- it is placed in a pan over heat so that the egg is fried and the bread is toasted. It is quite delicious! See here for more information: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egg_in_the_basket
Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes (1615):
“…to withdraw is not to run away, and to stay is no wise action when there’s more reason to fear than to hope; ’tis the part of a wise man to keep himself today for tomorrow, and not venture all his eggs in one basket.”
