Hva betyr "å lage liv"?

Hei,

... det er meg igjen ...

jeg har et nytt spørsmål om en talemåte jeg kunne ikke finde en god oversettelse for - verken i ordbøker eller ved å google den.

Det eneste jeg fant ut at denne frasen kunne har noe med å feire å gjøre - men det er jeg ikke helt sikker på også.

Kanskje dere ville hjelpe meg? ;-)

Takk på forhånd,

Daniel

Have you been listening to D.D.E.? ;)

Liv in this context refers to a lively atmosphere, so lage liv means to create a lively atmosphere, usually at a party, festival or other event. Fans singing supporter songs at football games would be a good example of people trying to "lage liv".

Nope, not D.D.E., but "Lekende Lett".

Anyways, thanks a lot for your explanation, it was very helpful.

It looks like it means "to make live." Not sure if that's right or not... I can't believe how much I could understand of your post, though! Duolingo is great!

Yeah, literally it could mean "to make life" - but "to make a waist" is also possible. ;-D

I got the idea it could have to do with dancing, but I just could not back this up anywhere on the net.
