That's actually a big part of why I chose to study Norwegian. I like the musical sound of the language.
Yes, but it only works in strict 2/4 time. "NorWEGian spEEch it IS all POLkas." See what I mean?
All sorts, really. Jazz fusion, rock, classics, even some sorts of religious music. At the moment am on an Emily Bear jag. Her modern jazz trio composions are stunning. Google her, or look on YouTube for her number called "Q" which she wrote at 11.
Surprised nobody mentioned this... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norwegian_phonology#Accent https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pitch_accent#Norwegian_and_Swedish
I tried to write an explanation of Norwegian pitch accent, based on what little I know. Take a look! https://www.duolingo.com/comment/25981909
"musikalskt" sounds ugly to most Norwegians, so they just use "musikalsk" instead for neuter, singular adjectives ending in "-sk"
It seems to be the same with adjectives ending in -lig: "et alvorlig problem". Perhaps there are more such endings?
All adjectives ending in -ig and -sk.
Then there are some special cases like "bra", which you will have to learn by heart.
