And for those learning Swedish, the word is awefully close... "trollbunden".

Thanks! Or rather, takk! :-)

I had a look at your Quizlet set and wanted to listen to the pronunciations of the words, but they were of the English equivalents. Do you know what would be a good source to find sound files of Faroese words? Google Translate doesn't seem to do Faroese at all.

Memrise has a course with 1800+ words with native audio. I haven't done it more than the first ten words, though, so I don't know how good the audio is, but the words I did do had pretty good audio. It is seriously one of the hardest languages to find resources for!

I didn't even know, what spellbound means in English...

But I googled it:)

To be spellbound is to have your attention captured by something, captured so strongly it feels like witchcraft.

Maybe I should do simpler words or include a better explanation ;) I like that definition, though!
