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.

All of these are compound nouns, there are no reasons why these should have their own entries.
I disagree and so do the inclusion criteria https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Wiktionary:Criteria_for_inclusion#Terms C0rn3j (talk) 22:43, 9 November 2018 (UTC)
Then you might as well add every single combination ever. Child's back, child's leg, child's feet, dog's feet, cat's head, monkey's tongue.. Both child and back have their own articles, there's no reason why "child's back" should also get one, there's isn't even one in English.
Source? Never heard of this and I am unable to find anything about it on Google. Supevan (talk) 22:50, 16 November 2019 (UTC)
Can you provide attestation for this word? I can not find enough sources to confirm it. Supevan (talk) 12:19, 19 November 2019 (UTC)
I have added this, but I do not know the etymology of the name. Supevan (talk) 10:13, 24 July 2020 (UTC)



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)



"Ferdig" can be combined with most words to create the meaning of done or finished. Not worthy of its own entry in my opinion. Supevan (talk) 12:22, 19 November 2019 (UTC)
A combination of two different words, can be combined with anything, does not need its own entry. Does not refer to anything specific on its own. Supevan (talk) 11:00, 30 June 2020 (UTC)


General combinations of two words which to not form a specific term, does not need their entries. Supevan (talk) 16:09, 17 November 2019 (UTC)




Could you please provide three recent sources for attestation? Supevan (talk) 12:39, 19 November 2019 (UTC)



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 is just a description of a cat in the snow, it should not have its own entry.
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.
I think sprengvokste is past tense (see vokste), but very rare. "Grew rapidly" I think.



Name is added, source on the expression? Never heard of it before and no hits on Google. Supevan (talk) 22:04, 18 November 2019 (UTC)


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-.








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.
