Lies and fake news.

For (fortiden) - future; vente - wait. Wait for the future (expect) - forvente.

Except that fortiden is the past not the future...

Kan vi bruke(fra)i stedet for (av)i denne setningen?

How would you phrase it?

I can only imagine this phrasing in the context of "Man, this article is poorly written." "Well, what do you expect from that newspaper?" I would maybe more likely hear "What do you expect to find in the news?"

The Norwegian sentence would likely be from a questionnaire, like if the newspaper wanted to get feedback on what its readers wanted to read.

I think that either "in" or "from" may be used in this sentence in either sense of the sentence: (A) the news in the newspaper today, or (B) the features of a good newspaper, in general. We get the news and the other features FROM the newspaper (a business), but we read them IN the newspaper (a document).

One can also say «of» the newspaper. D.

På svensk sier vi "hva forventer du DEG av avisen", er det ok å sie så på norsk?
