I dont think the "the" is really necessary
I agree, there must be a lot of very specific people, places and things in Norwegian
Can you hear the difference between jente and jenta? I find it very hard
why does 'en bok' become 'bøkene' with the accented ø? Is there a rule for when this should occur in plural form?
It's an irregular noun.
Bok = Book
Boken/Boka = The Book
Bøker = Books
Bøkene = The Books
