Oh how I wish :(

I wrote "Vi lever i Norge" however "Vi bor i Norge" is also acceptable. Is one more common than the other?

Vi bor i Norge, is more common

I saw a similar question with the same words and the answer is Bor is more like Reside while lever is more like Live...

What is the exact difference between bor and lever?

It seems like bor always refers to a geographical location whereas lever is more for informal place like "in the water".

Lever = live, in the sense of 'to exist'

Bor = live, in the sense of 'to reside'

I did for my first year of life. I am told I was starting to babble with a Norwegian accent.

I thought countries were never capitalized in norwegian?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/beerzoe

No, countries are always capitalised. Nationalities aren't, though, so someone comes fra Norge but is norsk: https://www.duolingo.com/skill/nb/Countries-and-Nationalities/tips-and-notes
