I recall some lyrics that went 'Jeg er full av kjempesjarm'. What's going on there?
I amend my statement. 'Full' can be used as 'full', just not on its own (for people/animals).
If "Jeg er full" means "I'm drunk", and "Jeg er mett" is "I'm full" when referring to people, what is the standard word for full? E.g. "The box is full of stuff." or "My glass is full."
Then you use full, again. Mett is an adjective for, hm, not hungry almost. We usually use full like in english, but there are many exceptions of course.
This is an expression I will never say in Norway With those prices I'll always stay sober. :D
most norwegians practice the art of "vorspeil" (taken from german) and make sure they show up at the bar already drunk from cheaper store-bought liquor and buy maybe 1-2 drinks at the actual bar :D
Det heter 'vorglühen', før-gløde, i Tyskland. Man 'vorspiel' er ikke også dårlig. Er meg setninger riktig?
In Latvia we call it warmup if you want to go to a club and want to have some fun you need to be warm, you need to warm up
And what about coffeine and other drugs - as in, having so much in that taking in more would be unhealthy?
You can, I just meant that we don't have an adjective to describe that. Jeg er full av koffein. It does sound a bit weird to say that though, we would probably say "Jeg har fått i meg for mye koffein" - "I have gotten too much coffeine (in me)" or something along those lines.
I think the difference you describe is explained above in AlsEenPoffertje's thread, but in this case "the glass is full", it would be "glasset er fullT", wouldn't it?
Is it just me, or was this one not part of any lesson? I went back to the one I thought it was (adjectives, lesson 5), but it was only used in the "full glass" sense. Thanks!
That's the lesson it belongs to, but a lesson only presents you with a selection of the available sentences each time you do it. It helps avoid endless repetition when reviewing.
Thanks! Is it possible to exhaustively get all of the examples in a lesson, for the sake of completeness of study?
It's not something you can force, no, though it would be nice to have that as an option. There's an algorithm in place that chooses the content of the lessons for you, based on both your personal track record and what it knows about the general difficulty of the sentences.
While the algorithm gets a lot of things right, it has a tendency to favour the easier sentences quite heavily, which means that the most challenging sentences seldom get shown - as their overall fail rates understandably are higher.
hi there i thank you , but you are so amazing , would you like to help me practice a little
"Full", when describing a person, means "drunk". We use "mett" to mean "full" as in "satiated".
The exception, is if "full" is modified by a noun: "full av glede", "full av energi", and so on.
Ah, makes sense now. Tusen takk! Here are some lingots for consistently helping all of us :).
