I found someone claiming that ~15% of our loanwords were from Low German. No proper source given, but it does sound like a reasonable amount.

Of course, many similar words have a shared root, rather than having been introduced to the language via German.

We can't translate this as "He isn't famous?"

No, it's asking the question "is he not famous?", not making the statement that he isn't

If you were answering this, could you say "Jo, Han er berømt"?

When answering "yes" to a negative question, such as the above, we use "jo".

In any other context, "yes" translates to "ja".

Kan dette ordet brukes i flertall? Hvilken preposisjon utfyller det? Ser vi, for eksempel, ''De er berømt(e) for/av... å gjøre noe?''

https://www.duolingo.com/Jorun-la

You could say "De er berømte for..." :)

Another example: "Sverdene er berømte" - The swords are famous

"Berømt" er ordet for alle kjønn. Det kommer fra det tyske "berühmt", tror jeg.

Hvorfor bruker vi "berømt" her?
