Öster vs öst, väster vs väst

What is the difference between öster and öst? Väster and väst? And I'm not sure what the equivalents for söder and norr are.

Compare östra/öst with Eastern/East etc in English. Södra/söder and norra/norr to answer your questions.

You mean östra there, not öster.

You're right! I just changed it. I should have checked before posting it.
