Wiktionary:Requested entries (Norwegian)

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Have an entry request? Add it to the list – but please:

  • Think twice before adding long lists of words as they may be ignored.
  • If possible provide context, usage, field of relevance, etc.
  • Check the Wiktionary:Criteria for inclusion if you are unsure if it belongs in the dictionary.
  • If the entry already exists, but seems incomplete or incorrect, do not add it here; add a request template to the entry itself to ask someone to fix the problem, e.g. {{rfp}} or {{rfe}} for pronunciation or etymology respectively.
    — Note also that such requests, like the information requested, belong on the base form of a word, not on inflected forms.

Please remove entries from this list once they have been written (i.e. the link is “live”, shown in blue, and has a section for the correct language)

There are a few things you can do to help:

  • Add glosses or brief definitions.
  • Add the part of speech, preferably using a standardized template.
  • If you know what a word means, consider creating the entry yourself instead of using this request page.
  • Please indicate the gender(s) .
  • If you see inflected forms (plurals, past tenses, superlatives, etc.) indicate the base form (singular, infinitive, absolute, etc.) of the requested term and the type of inflection used in the request.
  • Don’t delete words just because you don’t know them – it may be that they are used only in certain contexts or are archaic or obsolete.
  • Don’t simply replace words with what you believe is the correct form. The form here may be rare or regional. Instead add the standard form and comment that the requested form seems to be an error in your experience.

Source? Never heard of this and I am unable to find anything about it on Google. Supevan (talk) 22:50, 16 November 2019 (UTC)
Update: These terms are from the Wikipedia article "Moonshine by country", they are unsourced, void from Google and not in any dictionaries. Must be some obscure dialectal words which are not attestable, I'd say not worthy of an entry. Supevan (talk) 20:05, 14 March 2021 (UTC)

C[edit]

D[edit]

Absolutely no idea, not in dictionaries, rare on Google.
Seems to be a dialectal word with no unified meaning, could be different things depending on the speaker. Not standardised in any way, weird to see it in a book! Supevan (talk) 00:18, 17 November 2019 (UTC)
Update, this is from the book Odinsbarn, and as far as I can tell, the author (or the publisher) stated on Facebook this was a made up word, so not worthy of an entry, as there wasn't a statement of what it really means, and the word was left out it the English translation of the book.

Could you please provide three recent sources for attestation? Supevan (talk) 12:39, 19 November 2019 (UTC)
  • jøssing - a patriotic/anti-Nazi Norwegian, heard in the song "Dra til Skogs". According to en:Jøssingfjord, first used as a pejorative by Nazis and then appropriated by anti-Nazis.__Gamren (talk) 00:31, 6 April 2021 (UTC)
I created a Bokmål entry, will not remove this in case someone wants to create a Nynorsk entry. Supevan (talk) 08:45, 6 April 2021 (UTC)

K[edit]

L[edit]

It looks like likfødt when enlarged. No dictionary info, but has hits on Google. lik can also mean a corpse or dead body, which may be the clue.
Oh yeah, in the book it's likfødt and in the article likefødt, friend said they're the same - "Likefødt can be both past and present, E makes it more... Set in stone"
This appears to be an excerpt from the Ravneringene series by Siri Pettersen. Looking at this, a "corpseborn" is specified as living for millennia and having fangs and claws; it's presumably some kind of vampire-like being specific to this story and thus ineligible per WT:FICTION.
In the English version, Odin's Child, it's translated as "deadborn".__Gamren (talk) 00:47, 6 April 2021 (UTC)

M[edit]

N[edit]

This is a SOP of ny- and the past tense of kvesse, not worthy of an entry in the same way "newly sharpened" isn't. Supevan (talk) 09:18, 16 March 2021 (UTC)

O[edit]

P[edit]

Q[edit]

R[edit]

S[edit]

Have done the noun slire as it needed doing, but sliret appears to be a verb form that I can't trace: "og sliret kniven" is presumably referring to "lommekniven", so it may have been folded (sheathed). There is a verb "slire", but it means to slip or slide, and the past tenses are "slirte" and "slirt", so it shouldn't be that.
Asked a norwegian friend, he thinks it's the act of sheathing. Also thanks for slire, slirer was on the next page ^^
Beware of slirer: it could also conceivably be the present tense of the missing verb.
  • SOME / SoMe / some - new slang for social media (SOME is an abbreviation for Sosiale Medier), not sure about the correct spelling yet as I've seen all variations listed
  • spelemannslag - a fiddlers' group
I changed the language code to Nynorsk, as that is how they spell that word. In Bokmål the spellings "spelmannslag" and "spillemannslag" are accepted. Supevan (talk) 18:20, 14 February 2021 (UTC)
I think sprengvokste is past tense (see vokste), but very rare. "Grew rapidly" I think.
I'd say SOP of spreng + vokse (past tense). "Spreng" can be added to words to emphasise the intensity; sprengfryse, sprengfyre, sprengfull, sprengkald, sprenglærd, sprengkåt etc. Supevan (talk) 09:27, 16 March 2021 (UTC)

T[edit]

U[edit]

V[edit]

It only appears in that book, nowhere else. I can find "vannfødt", relating to births in water. I think it is using the prefix van-.
SOP of van- + føde (past tense), it means something like bad or unfortunate offspring / birth. Supevan (talk) 09:27, 16 March 2021 (UTC)
That doesn't seem SOP at all. If a child is "vanfødt", does it mean they were born with defects, or acquired them through birth trauma, or that they died during or immediately after birth, or something else?__Gamren (talk) 00:52, 6 April 2021 (UTC)
This term isn't really used on its own, from what I can tell (no hits on Norwegian Google, only thing I can find is an archaic Danish word referring to abortion). But based on the page I read in this book, it seems to refer to a child that is born "wrong" (where the prefix van- means bad or unfortunate), and is unable to love or be loved (favne), so it's more of a fictional or supernatural concept in this sense, that's my understanding anyway.

Å[edit]

Æ[edit]

Ø[edit]

That would appear to be correct, unsure about an entry though. A compound of øl + tåka (definite singular)
Haze may be a better word than fog, something like a hangover.
