koselig (neuter singular koselig, definite singular and plural koselige)

  1. cosy, cozy (US), comfortable
  2. nice, pleasant
  3. hello, a greeting

Usage notes[edit]

Koselig's use as a greeting is synecdoche from its appearance in the Norwegian phrase "koselig å hilse deg ("nice to meet/see you"). As such, it most frequently appears following other words of greeting as in "Hei! Koselig!" or "Hallo, koselig".
