In Norwegian, you have two variants of the word “yes” - ja, and jo. This might be a little confusing to English speakers learning Norwegian, when this difference does not appear in the English language.
But it’s not complicated at all. First of all, “ja” is the most commonly used, and what you in most cases should assume to be correct. “Jo” is usually used to correct someone - to imply the opposite of a former statement.
If asked a question of which you are positive to, you would reply with “ja” to imply so.
When someone makes a statement you agree with, you would use “ja” to imply so.
When someone makes a statement you disagree with, you use “jo” to imply the opposite.

Djupe skogen, Loke-skrall
Jotun frista hammar-skrall
Mjøllne brest hugens hallar
Fjell og dalar drottens drønne-kall
I Utgard; Ake-Tor
Følget råka Jotun jord
Niding pest i Lokes hallar
Gny hirden, Tor i kallar med nid
Hammar Haus - Hammar-Ty

Ramme raus - Hammar-Ty
Rimkolde Rungne ramma
Utgard-Lokes falske leik
Ei ussel, ei veik - Åsa-Tor
Huge ga Tjalve strid
Strauk han grunnen lett som vinden
Ingen grid i utgards hallar
Traust Tjalve beintrøtt tok sitt mot
Loke ei hell vil ha
Loge brenner lukt som ilden
Ingen list i Åsa-kallar
Balders bane taus mot Muspells ve
Havets larm i det mektige mjødhorn
Stort om stavnen
Mein i den mektige
Æges arge velde
Hatefullt står imot havets harme
Om alle land
Med eiter om juvande kjeften
Elle - Arge eldes velde
For alders føtter alle faller
Ei håp om grid

Loke bleik i Utgards hallar
- having indoor plants: Norwegians love to have indoor plants that they all put in the windows of their houses, usually facing the street. they are also usually put into a formation that is equal on each side.
- the color white: almost every house I have been to is dominated by this lovely hue. The cabinets, tile, ceilings, dishes, and usually the people are white.
- sweater dresses: Norwegian women seem to have found a fashionable alternative to a chunky wool dress and a warm sweater by putting the two together. This is usually layered over wool leggings or straight legged jeans.
- unstained wood: if a house is not all white then it is most likely all unstained Norwegian wood. I dare you to find a true Norwegian house that has wood in it that is anything but glossed. lykke til.
- station wagons: it can fit the entire family and their skis; what is not to love?
- the color black: if you did not allow the majority of the Norwegian people to wear black they would never go outside because they wouldn’t have anything to wear. when people say I look American and I ask why it is usually of a variation of ‘you are always wearing bright colors’ or ‘your purse is so shiny’.
- snow: no explanation needed.
- homemade pizzas: this is the go-to food for parties or get-togethers or ambitious 8-year-olds.
- doing weird things with fish: i don’t know where they get the ideas for some of these meals but their ancestors must have just been really bored during the winter.
- alcohol: it’s cold here, so something has to keep you warm.
i am sure i will add more later.
Oh Cod this is all so true!!
Edvard Munch is a Norwegian artist who lived from 1863-1944. Munch is mostly known for his expressionistic paintings, but was also a printmaker. From very early on in his life, Munch had been surrounded by death. His emotions and views on sickness are very distinct in his works.
If you know any of his pieces, it is most likely “The Scream.” Right now I am writing a paper on his influences and am currently revisiting his work. It wasn’t until this summer that I got to look at his full body of work when I took a Norwegian Art History course and we went to the Munch Museum in Norway.
I find that a lot of Munch’s popular pieces are wonderful, but he has many other great works that are overlooked or not exposed enough. Here are some pieces of Munch’s you may not have known about or paid attention to, but they are really beautiful.

Welcome to Norway. Where a ‘metal’ band sing their opinion on whether or not there should be a sculpture-park in the forest.
