Can I just say, this language is absolutely lovely :-) Especially when you have been learning Danish and you switch to learning Norwegian :'''D
I'm a bit confused about "ute" as well, as I thought "utenfor" was outside, but perhaps I haven't been using "utenfor" correctly. Can someone comment on "ute" vs "utenfor?"
I believe ut(e) to mean outside in general, while utenfor seems to apply when being outside of something specific. For example you would say "Jeg er utenfor butikken" when you're outside of a shop, standing in front of it.
I'm not a native Norwegian speaker but the audio sounds okay to me. It should be a [æ] sound like in Swedish.
Still didn't understand if the right pronounce of "mange" is a kind of "mañe" (like the sound of gn in Italian, for those who know) or it's a kind of "mangHe".
The tips you've got here also apply for other adverb-pairs — inn/inne, opp/oppe, ned/nede, hjem/hjemme, hit/her, and dit/der. The first indicates motion, the second refers to stationary things.
Think of the E as a paper bag on top of a car. It flies off when the car is in motion. I hope I'm making sense... take a look at our tips and notes for the directions chapter when you are able to. It is explained there in further detail.
Yes. it is therefore weird to use "det finnes mange trær ute"
(it would be a philosophical and odd sentence)
It does:) "Det finnes" indicates the existence of something, often physical objects. So "Det finnes trær ute" is also possible. Especially in question form: "Finnes det trær ute?"
Well, i may be wrong, but i learned that "det" means "that" or "it" and "der" means "there". So i think it must be "Der er mange trær ute", mustn't it?
just to confuse me even further why is the translation off from what is written down in the translation, this seems to happen often. I have seen ute and utenfor used in the same context. This happens often. I hear the voice say Hunden and even slowed down it sounds like Hun which adds to the confusion. Maybe my ears cannot hear it but I hear no change to name just only one example. Kind of frustrating and makes me want to skip the hearing portion.
