I've been told by norwegian friends elsker is quite a strong word, certainly not used by anyone that is not a loved one or family??
Hi, why there is a "r" in elsker? Because elsker=loves But we cannot say "I loves a man". Can someone help me?
You can't translate it in into English grammar. Doesn't work with northgermanic languages. I don't know the correct terminology but the grammar is more similar to german but much easier. "Elsker" is just the simple present form: Jeg elsker deg du elsker meg vi elsker dere han elsker hun as long as it present tense it's ELSKER, no matter who loves who and what. And according to friends from Norway it's only used when you're really close to someONE. Although it's grammatically correct you don't say: "jeg elsker epler", so they say. I guess Norwegian is best learned by talking, since there are so many different nuances due to regional differencies
