Norwegian is the language spoken in Norway. It's closely related to Danish and Swedish, and some speakers of the three languages can understand the others. Most of Norway's 4.5 million citizens speak Norwegian.

There are two official variations of written Norwegian: Bokmål and Nynorsk. The differences are small, but important to a lot of Norwegians. Bokmål is by far the most common, and evolved from Danish. Nynorsk is a newer spelling invented sometime in the 1800's by a Norwegian priest, writer, and linguist called Ivar Aasen, who took a sample of common dialects, and synthesized a written language with most of their common elements.

The actual proportion of people using Nynorsk instead of Bokmål is constantly debated in Norway, but it's somewhere in the 10-50% range.

There are also many spoken variations (dialects) of Norwegian, and even to Norwegians, some of them can be really hard to understand if you are not used to them. Because of radio, TV, and other mass communication, the situation is normalizing towards a language more similar to how it is written (Bokmål or Nynorsk).

Pronunciation Guide

Norwegian spelling is pretty simple and regular (compared to, say, English), but like most real languages, unfortunately not completely regular.

Norwegian phrasebook

Vowels

Each vowel can be pronounced either as "long" or "short". A "short" vowel will always be followed by a double consonant (i.e. two similar consonants, such as ll or tt). A long vowel is not.

For example, in Norwegian "it" will be pronounced as in eet, whereas "itt" will be pronounced as english iht.

The Norwegian vowels are pronounced in almost the same way as in German. There are three additional vowels. æ (Æ), ø (Ø), and å (Å). Here's the full list:

like 'a' in "father"
like 'e' in "better" (but like æ if it is followed by an r)
like 'i' in "pin"
o (short
like o in "lord"
o (long
like 'oo' in "spooky"
like 'oo' in "foot"
like 'i' in "pin" (but darker; y doesn't correspond to any sound in English. English speakers may have difficulty distinguishing Norwegian's i and y. It's similar to German ü or French u.)
æ 
like 'a' in "hat"
ø 
like 'u' in "burn"
å 
like 'o' in "lord"

Don't touch me! 
Ikke rør meg! (...)
I'll call the police. 
Jeg ringer politiet. (...)
Note: This really means dial the police on the phone. Since there aren't many street cops in Norway, if it's really an emergency, it would make more sense to simply cry Hjelp! (Help), and hope a random person will come to your rescue.

I'm lost. 
Jeg har gått meg bort. (...)
Even though this is under the problems section, this phrase comes out sounding like you have wandered the woods for days without food or rest, having no idea where you are or where to go (in which case it would be obvious anyway). Either that, or you're 5 year old, in which case getting lost from your parents is equally serious. See below for a more reasonable alternative.

While almost any kind of carry-on item can be called bag in english, in norwegian it means a duffle bag. You usually have to be more specific, here are a few alternatives, as part of this sentence, you should also read the part in parenthesis to get the grammar right.

* suitcase = koffert(en)
* backpack = ryggsekk(en)
* duffle bag = bag(en)
* shoulder bag = skulderveske(n)
* handbag = håndveske(n)
* plastic bag = plastikkpose(n)

21 and on

Larger numbers than twenty can be written several ways in Norwegian. Sometimes each word is written separately. Sometimes hyphens are used. And sometimes, the whole number is written as one large word; there are two ways of counting from 21-99.

Norwegian phrasebook
New counting system

The new counting is what most people use nowadays. And probably what they would consider using to someone having problems understanding. This is what you should learn.

Norwegian phrasebook
Old counting system

The old counting system is slightly more illogical, but still quite a few people use it. Its popularity increases with the age of the speaker. Most people will probably revert to the new counting system if they realize the speaker is not fluent in norwegian, but here it is for completeness (In English this system has been used in the past, but a change analogous to the new system in Norwegian occurred a long time ago, so few realise this now, although the reminders exist in the teen numbers and the Four and twenty blackbirds nursery rhyme).

The simplest way to say time is to use the 24 hour system.

Norwegian phrasebook
12 hour system

There is no universal AM/PM usage in norway. If people are not familiar enough with english to understand you saying the time in english, they will probably not understand AM or PM either. To disambiguate time, you can look at the section called Time (morning, evening, etc). It can be hard hard to choose the correct preposition/grammar to use for these (which depends a lot on context, past, future, etc), so the easiest is to simply append it after having said the time.

The clock-hour can be divided as follows

10.00 
klokka 10 (...)
10.05 
fem over 10 (femm åv-er ti)

If this is a concern, try another country. Shechita is forbidden in Norway, and meat needs to be specially imported. Try to order fresh fish ("fersk fisk") or something vegetarian instead. Tell the waiter you are an orthodox jew ("ortodoks jøde"), and try to reach an understanding. You will have to compromise, as you can't expect the cook to keep a separate set of pans/knives/etc just for you. If it is a large expensive restaurant, they might be able to do so, but if you are very pedantic about this, you should prepare your own food from carefully selected food in grocery shops.
