I don't know if I have a problem hearing this word, but I understand "restauranGen", exactly like in Swedish. What's the exact pronunciation ? :)

Someone explained this b4 preciously. It seems that there is no nt sound in norwegian. So this loan word ending is pronounced like -ng as you mentioned

If 'Down beyond' and 'Past' is accepted, why isn't 'Beyond'? Is there a difference in their meanings?

'Past' shouldn't be accepted.

To clarify why: 'nedenfor' means 'down past' in the sense of below or under, not past. You are literally talking about a lower level than where you or something else is, not going past something. Below is the word I used in my translation, because I have never heard of the construction 'down past' before.

Why shouldn't 'Past' be accepted? It sounds right to me to say "down past"

"down past" is accepted.

Because "past" would be bortenfor, nedenfor has a downwards direction.

I'm a little confused myself. "Down past" and "beyond" seem pretty synonymous, unless this particular situation deals with a hill in particular.

When I think of this sentence I think of giving directions to someone. "Hvor er banken?" "Where is the bank?" "Nedenfor restauranten." "Down past the restaurant."

It does not seem to be "under" nor "below" here, but "down past the restaurant" or "down beyond the restaurant" Perhaps this is an idiom? "nedenfor" does mean below when talking about a page of a book or on screen as in "see below" with the meaning of "further down the page"... or "further along in the news article". http://www.nob-ordbok.uio.no/perl/ordbok.cgi?OPP=+nedenfor

How do you differentiate between "Down past the restaurant" and "Below the restaurant" if the restaurant were on the second story, for example?

If it's on a floor below a restaurant I'd say "under restauranten" or "i etasjen under restauranten" :)

What does it mean by "DOWN PAST"?

Same question. Not a native English speaker here, I have no idea how to visualize a "down past" or "beyond" something. Is it behind? Or further down the street?

Imagine you are on a hill, and down the hill is the restaurant, but your car is past the restaurant, if you follow the road, in the car park. You would say your car was down past, further down than or beyond the restaurant (although beyond can imply further away in a straight line). Think of it as "down (the hill and) past" hope this helps.

Then you're hearing it right! :) Sense the word is loaned from French it happens to make the G sound. Other people have explained it much better than myself, however, in the comments of some of the previous lessons.

Down past makes sense to me. Restaurant is uphill so you go down (and) past it if you are also at the top of the hill. It might be a British thing lol. "Under" and "beneath" the restaurant would denote that whomever was in the cellar, buried in the foundations, or such like. Beyond, past etc... Although subjective, generally mean a point set further away than another point. Beyond may be becoming somewhat dated now, I imagine, in modern parlance giving way to 'past' etc
