NorgeNoreg(Nynorsk) "similar"

Window = VinduVindauge(Nynorsk) "somewhat similar but differs quite a bit"

How = HvordanKorleis(Nynorsk) "differs a lot"

"Samisk" even though some of my fellow countrymen speak it, I have no understanding of it, I actually don't know a single word.

And Norwegian is full of different dialects that sounds so different that you can hardly tell that they are the same language.
Example:

My dialect "" (and there are many different dialects within "t", I speak something in between "" and "fosnsk")
sounds something like "Jeg er ikke helt riktig naglet i hodet"

And in "nynorsk" it`s "Eg er ikkje heilt rektig nagla i haudet"(not quite sure it`s 100% correct)

I don`t know how it`s in other countries, but Norwegian really confuses my knowledge of language!

Any thought`s

@molok69,
Hi, molok69.

Your language situation appears to be all messed up; sorry for you Sad.

We don't really have that in America. But I come from Boston and we do speak differently from the rest of the country.

In Boston we say 'Paahk the kah'. Instead of 'park the car' etc.

Here is a link that I found on the web is for having a conversation like in Norway: jabberwacky - live chat bot - AI Artificial Intelligence chatbot - jabber wacky - talking robot -chatterbotThe program asks you questions and then you talk to it, it's fun:)

Cheers!

@Pythagorean,
Did you ever try to make love to some one who was talking all the time, and finally you have to say: Baby. Will you please hang up! I'd like to have an orgasim now.

I think we here in southern Norway rather would say:
Maybe I'm a bit finicky? :bigsmile:

@molok69,
Several other European nations have just as much trouble;some parts speak German, others either Italian or French. And not only do you have to deal with two very distinct dialects, you have to learn English as well!

People in America are divided by language, and are perhaps divided on that line everywhere... When you do not have a common culture, and no common mother, as all true nations... When any person says a word like freedom, there is no reason to believe he holds the same difinition as yourself... That line from Voltair: If you would discourse with me, define your terms -was never more true any place than this... And if you have to spend all of your time talking about talking, then that is the second intention...
