It's a shame most people don't know how to differentiate between viking og norrønt folk

    It is a shame that people dream about vikings while Scandinavia converted to christianism

    More people should practice odinism and paganism, even if you dont fully beleive in the supernatural side, it is still a good way to honour our ancesters and renember were we came from

    One can appreciate one's roots without practicing. Lots of people study mythology of a myriad of cultures without practicing it.

    Partially, yes

    Why yes, in fact I am. :-)

    Jeg er av islandsk avstamning. Jeg gjenskaper vikingetiden i fritiden min.

    Why yes, how did you know Duo?

    That moment when you realize that you can't distinguish "Viking" from "Scandinavian"

    Just messing :) But seriously, that'd be like an English person saying that they're a knight, or a Japanese person saying they're a Samurai. Viking refers only to a military class (A broad one, but a military class nonetheless).

    Aw. I tried, "Are you a Viking guy?" just to test the flexibility of the translator, and the amuse myself. Didn't mean to stumble into a sore spot for many people.

    Why is it written as 'viking' in Norwegian and not as 'Viking'?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Deliciae

    Demonyms and ethnonyms aren't capitalised in Norwegian, nor are languages.

    Names of countries and proper names in general are still capitalised.

    Funny as hell actually


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AlexanderM723726

    Tja, er jo født og oppvokst i Norge. Ja, jeg er nok en viking.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ryanaissance

    Yes, and I discovered Iceland.

    Jeg vet ikke hvis norske barna så Gargoyles på TV, men jeg kan bare høre denne setningen i Lexingtons stemme.
