"It is not raining."

Translation:Det regner ikke.

You won't hear this in Bergen!


I spent a few days in Bergen and it didn't rain at all, even though it was winter. Everyone said I was really lucky. :-O


Coming off of latin where describing the weather as "it makes"


Huh, could you explain? I know about the 'it makes' form of weather (in French, they say 'Il fait beau" = "It makes beautiful (weather)" when saying the weather is beautiful), but I cannot see how it's relevant in the case of Norwegian (or my native language Dutch, where we say the exact same thing as here).


I have a hard time remembering the difference between "det" and "den". Can anyone help me?
