Norwegian self-taught- - PDF book (1920) by Carl A. Thimm

Norwegian self-taught by the natural method. With phonetic pronunciation 

Norwegian self-taught



This volume is primarily intended to supply a working and practical knowledge of the Norwegian language, for the benefit of those who have not the time or the inclination to study the grammar, and yet require to use the spoken tongue for purposes of business or pleasure. 


With this object in view it supplies many vocabularies, carefully selected for daily use and classified according to the subject, and a large number of colloquial phrases and sentences of a practical character, similarly classified. Throughout these sections of the volume, the English phonetic pronunciation of the Norwegian words is added (in the third column) in accordance with Marlborough's system of phonetics — a system which has grown out of the long experience and is of so simple a nature that, by means of it, a stranger to the language, who knows English only, can read off the words at a glance, and thus easily make himself understood amongst Norwegian-speaking people. An outline of the Grammar is added for the use of those who wish to make a study of the language.
