Pronunciation dictionary

[deactivated user]

    Is there some online Norwegian dictionary (whether mono- or bilingual) which gives the pronunciation, preferably in IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet)? I am 40+ and find it hard (in fact impossible) to hear the sounds I don't already know from my other languages as different from those I do know, eg /ʉ/ and /ʉː/ sound just like /ʊ/ and /uː/ to me. I can usually make out what's being said from the context, but I would like to pronounce the correct sounds myself. Tusan takk!

    Try this one! I don't know exactly how many words there are there, but it's probably a good start.

      Tusan takk! It's not perfect, but with the help of the two tables for consonants and vowels <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norwegian_phonology#Consonants">here</a> it will make a good guide for the beginning, and gradually my subconscious may get the general rules :).
