Usage notes[edit]

  • When g is written before j, they merge together and create the sound of y in you.
  • G is sometimes pronounced like the s in sugar in words of French origin, like genre, due to the fact that Norwegian lacks the voiced palato-alveolar sibilant [ʒ].
  • In eastern and nothern dialects, g at the end of pronouns is pronounced like the y in boy. In western and southern dialects, the g is pronounced like g in great.

The word for cat in Portuguese is gato, and starts with g.
