Random words and phrases – Pondus inspired

I har ikke skrevet anything for a while, so whilst I read the new edition of Pondus I figured I might as well note a few nice ord and phrases I stumble across. I’ll also mention a few day-to-day things that I’ve come across that may be nyttig. Oh, and of course be a bit forsiktig with the “Pondus ord” because many of them are of course quite “slangy”!

  • Det står ingenting på denne lappen – There is nothing on this ticket
  • Overbevist – Satisfied
  • Vellykket – Successful
  • Du er nødt til å… – You really have to…
  • Ta en blund – Take a nap
  • Kan jeg få en sånn – May I have one of those/these? (Whilst pointing at something)

    I think I would probably translate Overbevist with convinced. That is more correct than satisfied, although that will work in some scenarios – I think.

    I am convinced that you will like the book I bought you.
    Jeg er overbevist om at du vil like boka jeg har kjøpt til deg.
