Icelandic[edit]

Pronunciation[edit]

Interjection[edit]

  1. hi

Usage notes[edit]

The use of and (corresponding to English hi and bye, respectively) is often frowned upon, especially among older people. The greetings sæll and blessaður (both of course declined in terms of gender and number) and/or the undeclined (and slightly less formal) bless should be used instead.


Norwegian[edit]

Interjection[edit]

  1. huh; Word expressing doubt or confusion.
  2. Word used to express amusement or subtle surprise.
  3. (informal) used to indicate that one did not hear what was said.
