From the incubator:

"The tree in testing is currently released to 50% of new users and 50% of old users."

I, for instance, don't have it yet. ;)

From 75, the tree expanded to 112 sets of skills in total (!). I counted the new skills, there are 37 NEW of them. I was at 37 with 38 skills remaining, now I have 75 remanining, so probably at least 2 more months of new practice for me. Lots of stuff, so thanks a lot to the Norsk Duolingo creation team. Takk!

I had a dream that I was given access to it right before I went to sleep and was a bit upset that I couldn't stay up all night doing it.

But then I had dreams of new and wonderful things that was changed about the course, like new kinds of activities and such.

And then I woke up and it was back to the old tree.

Yes, and being looking in amazement and awe since then to the new tree .... for those who like to know how rich the new tree is, just copying the information that Luke once posted in the incubator:

The second version of our course has the following statistics: 3,210 words, more than any other Duolingo course 110 skills 473 lessons Lessons per skill, average: 4.3 Lessons per skill, maximum: 7 Words per lesson, target/average: 7

Maybe this was slightly changed during the last few weeks when testing the new tree, but anyway it is an incredible source for studying!

Fantastic effort and as I posted elsewhere, I wonder whether any other Duolingo course has such a wealth of information. I suppose the vocabulary has also gone up now.

With this new tree, there is plenty of work also now for the Memrise parallel course developers, because they have to upgrade their course to the new tree as well ... being using this parallel course all the time to easily strengthen my vocabulary, which is an endless struggle....

Yes, we lack impulse control. ;)

We removed a few words for being little used colloquially anymore. Not because they're useless to know, but because teaching them the way we did implied that they were still being used in the manner learners would expect them to be. Examples are "hvis" as a relative pronoun, and "frøken".

Similarly, the rather old-fashioned "vitenskapsmann" had to give way for the younger generation of "forskere".

We removed the infamous "A.V.-is" (avis) as a separate lexeme, because Liv butchers it so utterly and completely that it makes Norwegian teachers all around the world cry out in despair. However, we still have it available as a form, and still teach "avisen/aviser/avisene" as well.

I think we also removed some non-essential vocab that was difficult to teach properly, either because of the Duo format or because there was no good translation in English, but I cannot remember any examples at the moment. Still keeping the important-yet-difficult words, of course.

We replaced a handful of words with more common synonyms, and also replaced some words with other spelling variations of the same word. ("overflatisk" -> "overfladisk")

We removed a couple of words that were quite marginal or already had good synonyms in the tree, to make room for more important ones. But then again... someone added "enhjørning". ("akkord", "hundretalls")

4/20/2016, 10:09:29 AM

(Linn, your post does not allow for any more edits, so I start anew). Interesting that "hvis" as a relative pronoun is considered obsolete, I think it was quite prominent in the earlier tree.

And of course, someone added the Norwegian equivalent of 'kitten' ....

It's not obsolete in academics (and I personally love using it), but this is a beginner/intermediary course made for a broader audience.

Anyone finding themselves running into the word regularly, will probably be quite well equipped to figure it out on their own. :)

"Kattunger" are very important.

Thought I'd better check in on the tree and rack up a few points to make sure it stays gold and my first reaction was, "Aaarrgghhh, what happened? Someone's thrown coloured paint over it." Then I realised it's the new tree. Thank you team, this is going to be fun (although I'm supposed to be concentrating on Italian and German at the moment).
