The word "tallerken" is so wonderfully close to the Russian "tarelka" I need an extra moment to switch to the "plate" translation.

I’m really confused about the pronunciation of Norwegian O. So “tom” is /tum/ and “tomt” and “tomme” are /tɔmt/ and /tɔm(ː)ǝ/ respectively. Is that right?

I think it's more like /tom/ than /tum/.

I was wondering if English got "tomb" from Norges "tom." But it appears to have originated from the Greek word "tymbos," which is largely similar to engelsks modern definition of it. Oh well!
