Who is Porfyhr?
Well to begin with a latin quote that I cherish:
Ego sum qui sum
And a swedish poem that I love:
Jag är inte
Jag råkar bara
handla om samma saker.
a pop song.
I just deal with
the same trivialities.
Regarding my Norwegian, I'm fluent in Bokmål and I do have a proper knowledge in Nynorsk. If you don't know that Norwegian is actually two different languages: Nynorsk and Bokmål, then I'll show you an example to elicit the difference.
Eng: How are you?
Bokmål norwegian: Hvordan går det?
Nynorsk norwegian: Korleis gjeng det?
The Nynorsk is originally the elder Norwegian but the name Nynorsk, "New Norwegian", is therefore a bit confusing. It is a minority of the Norwegian people that speaks Nynorsk. Norwegian as well as Swedish do have a lot of very different dialects, in general they are just expressed in spoken language.
The "strange characters" in Swedish and Norwegian alphabet are:
Sw: å Å, ä Ä, ö Ö
No: å Å, æ Æ, ø Ø
Finally my avatar is the royal court seal from the union of Sweden and Norway in 1814-1905.
