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 Ã¤r inte
Jag rÃ¥kar bara
handla om samma saker.
a pop song.
I just deal with
the same trivialities.
Regarding my Norwegian, I'm fluent in BokmÃ¥l and I do have a proper knowledge in Nynorsk. If you don't know that Norwegian is actually two different languages: Nynorsk and BokmÃ¥l, then I'll show you an example to elicit the difference.
Eng: How are you?
BokmÃ¥l norwegian: Hvordan gÃ¥r 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: Ã¥ Ã…, Ã¤ Ã„, Ã¶ Ã–
No: Ã¥ Ã…, Ã¦ Ã†, Ã¸ Ã˜
Finally my avatar is the royal court seal from the union of Sweden and Norway in 1814-1905.
