'Kurv' is a hard one for me. It sounds like she says 'kolof' or 'kuluf'.
Is it something like [ku:ɾʋ]? My dictionary shows <v~ʋ> for 'V' and <v<sub>ʋ</sub>w> for 'W'. And there are like, four or five different variations of 'R' ø_Ø
probably closer to [kuɾʋ], although I'm not sure which R- or V-sound those last letters represent. Those vary depending on the dialect.
'w' isn't a Norwegian letter and is only found in loanwords.
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 googled "egg i en kurv" and mostly found pictures of eggs in an actual basket rather than any eggs in toast. So based on that, I'd guess that no, It doesn't refer to the recipe that it does in English. Or at least it's not as common.
There isn't one. This is just a noun phrase (specifically, a head noun- "egg"- followed by a prepositional phrase- "i en kurv").
'Et egg' is a monosyllabic neuter noun, and many monosyllabic neuter nouns do not change in the indefinite plural, they are just without the article (et egg -> egg). Another example of this would be 'a house' - 'houses' -> 'et hus' - 'hus'.
