To whoever is interested: «På vann og brød» is a way to say «in prison» for historic reasons. https://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vann_og_br%C3%B8d

How do you type the o with slash in it from android phone?

Try holding down "o" and see if other options appear. If not, you can download a Norwegian or international keyboard.

Well then what is <<vant>>?


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

"Vant" can mean either "won" or "used/accustomed/wont (to)".

"Vatn" is just another way of spelling "vann".

Typo...the answer shows 'vatn' in desktop versions

"Vatn" is a spelling variation of "vann". Not commonly used in Bokmål, but still correct.
