The 5th Norwegian lesson teaches the use of the gender by creating the feminine from the masculine form. In addition to that, I included a vocabulary list about clothes and finally common phrases about origins. I will try to give examples using both vocabulary and grammar. That way it will be easy for you to see the words when they are separate and when they are in a sentence. Going through the whole page should take about 30 min. Make sure to read the pronunciation and hear the audio as well. If you have any question about this course, please email me directly at Norwegian Classes.
Knowing how to derive the feminine from the masculine form is very useful. It can make it easy to have a conversation about family members, pets, or professions. An example would be: "man", "woman", "Cat (fem.)", "cat (masc.)" etc.
Below is a list of 12 masculine and feminine forms that you might come across or use very often. The table contains 3 columns (English, Norwegian, and Audio). Make sure you repeat each word after hearing it by either clicking on the audio button or by reading the pronunciation. That should help with memorization as well as improving your pronunciation.
Now we will try to implement some of the forms above into full Norwegian sentences. That way you will be able to use the word not only by itself but embedded in a structure.
|He is tall||Han er høy|
|She is tall||Hun er kort|
|He is a short man||Han er en kort mann|
|She is a short woman||Hun er en kort kvinne|
|He is German||Han er tysk|
|She is German||Hun er tysk|
|Japanese men are friendly||Japanske menn er vennlige|
|Japanese women are friendly||Japanske kvinner er vennlige|
