beklager

  1. sorry

    I'm sorry, I do not have time right now.

Usage notes[edit]

Unlike undskyld, beklager does not (necessarily) indicate that the speaker feels they have done anything wrong, thus it is less an apology than it is an acknowledgement that something is an inconvenience to the interlocutor.
