Why not? "grusom" = gruesome, terrible, horrible, despicable, awful...

Having said that, our default translation (which is always the one shown up top) is "forferdelig".

I misspelled 'forferdelig' and the entire phrase corrected to "Maten er elendig". What is the direct translation of 'elendig'? Is it interchangeable with forferdelig?

I think 'elendig' is more along the lines of 'miserable' or 'pathetic'.

Can I use "skitne" instead?
