Start too many sentances in English with the word surely and surely enough someone will eventually reply "Don't call me Shirley!"
I guess just for the sake of sentence. But yes, selvfølgelig literally means "of course" and visst is "surely" or "certain"
Instead of replying with the V2 word order rule, which is very dry and needlessly confusing if you look it up, why not say it's necessary when an adverb or adverbial phrase starts the sentence? I'm sure there are other occasions that the V2 word order rule will address, but I think it's easier to learn and remember on a case by case basis.
For me the V2 rule is much easier than how you would like it to be explained. I don't always know when something is an adverbial phrase for example...
If you're having problems with differentiating them in pronunciation, that's not a problem; they really do sound similar. "Viss" is even an accepted spelling variation for the word "hvis".
Of course, "visst" gets the added "t", and that "t" is pronounced.
so hvis man sier foreksampl (yes , ofcourse you )KAN MAN SI DET SÅNT (JA VISST ) I STEDET FOR (JA , SÅ KLART)?
Because it is not intended to be a question? rather look at it as an answer to questions such as "Er det (virkelig,egentlig etc.) forferdelig?"
Now that I'm reading my question again Petroxide I think I am mistaken with the word order, because I am Dutch. I used the Dutch word order and that's just not okay in this case. I never saw it as a question however. Thanks for taking the time to answer me :-) .
No problem,i just picked a random skill to do since i had nothing better to do and wondered why there are so many comments on this sentence :D I don't know Dutch and if it uses V2 rule or not but i remember having trouble grasping that concept. It all comes naturally with time and practice,i guess. Lykke til med kommende setninger! ^^
Why ia 'visst' at the beginning of the sentence? Would 'Det er visst forferdelig' be also grammatically correct?
There would be no issue with doing so from a grammatical point of view, but the meaning of "visst" would change to something closer to "apparently". It would be a valid sentence, but you wouldn't be saying the same thing.
