Could I say, "Jeg begynner å kjenne Norsk," in order to mean that I am beginning to understand the Norwegian language?
You could, but it sounds a little strange. It's better to say " Jeg begynner å kunne prate norsk."
I want to make sure that I'm understanding a key point here correctly: In old Norse, the accusative and nominative come from "hann", and "ham" is actually originally dative?
