Is there any differene between this and 'Det er nøyaktig hva jeg snakker om'?
They're largely synonymous, but there are quite a few cases where substituting one for the other would sound off. I do not agree with "nøyaktig" being somehow more precise than "akkurat". If anything, I'd say that "nøyaktig" is closer to precise(ly), and "akkurat" closer to "exact(ly)"
"Nøyaktig" can be used as an adverb modifying verbs ("akkurat" can modify other adjectives). It's also the adjective you'd use when describing something written or drawn as precise.
"Akkurat" is the only one that would be used in sentences like "It's not exactly legal". It's also the one you'd opt for when translating "right now" and "right then". "Akkurat passe" means "just right", as in just the right amount or fit. When responding in agreement to a statement, you can say "Akkurat" like you would "Exactly".
There is a tiny bit more leeway in "akkurat". If you caught a train "akkurat på tiden", you were within an error margin of half a minute. If you caught it "nøyaktig på tiden" you were still in the doorway when the doors started closing. Akkurat can be used in either situation, nøyaktig should be saved for only the most precise instances.
So strange, I thought is exactly the opposite, since ''akkurat'' looks similar to -accuracy- in English that describes....accuracy :D sharpness and precision. Sometimes Norwegian language is so upside down.
I'm not sure if this is grammatically correct in English (though I know it's at least said colloquially), but shouldn't "It is exactly that I'm talking about" be accepted? I'm sure grammatically it should be 'that, that', but if you put emphasis on the 'that' and a little pause before the I'm, most don't say 'that, that'. I feel like it should be an accepted answer, but perhaps I'm wrong.
Oh, I just thought that the spelling looked strange :). Why not "nøjaktig"?
There are no Norwegian words with øj belonging together. "j" is a consonant, and not used in diphthongs in Norwegian (can't promise there aren't any exceptions though)
Oh I see, it's a diphthong, stupid me! Thanks a lot! I thought that I hadn't seen the øy combo before, but I know of "øya" (the island) of course.
