Is the "på" essential in Norwegian?

(In English, we say simply "do you trust me?" or "I put trust in them". But "putting trust in..." feels increasingly archaic, and I don't think we'd use it in fist/second-person or question constructs at all, only third.)

What is the difference between "stoler" and tror"? Takk


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

I could be wrong here, but I think 'stoler' is "to trust (in someone)" and 'tror' is more like, "to believe (in something)."

YOUSEF AND SANA

can the "på" be dropped in the same way "in" can be in the english version?

Do you trust in me. This is NOT correct English. Should be either "Do you trust me" or "Do have trust in me"

That's incorrect. It's a perfectly grammatically correct sentence in English, at least here in the UK.

Doesn't sound right, but English isn't my first language

To trust someone : to believe that someone is honest or will not do anything bad or wrong

To trust in someone or somthing : to belive in somthing (ie I trust in God)

What is the conbection between "trust" and "chairs" in norwegian? Is there one or is this just another homophony?

Is there no difference then between "Do you trust me?" and "Do you trust in me?"? I'm not native English speaker, but to me the former sounds like trusting what someone says whereas the latter sound like trusting in someone's moral fortitude.
