bassen Colloquialisms- Post & Define 'Em! Fun! (212* d) RE: Colloquialisms- Post & Define 'Em! Fun! 08 Apr 99

Anyone ever heard anyone sing "get your kicks on rowt 66"? *grin*

There aren't that many colloquialisms around here in Norway that would make much sense to the great majority of you all in the 'cat, so I guess I should just be lurking on this one. .

HOWEVER:English-speaking people in Norway tend to get their mother tongue infected/corrupted by the norwegian they hear and speak every day, so if you visit a friend or relative in Norway and he asks you to "screw up" the stereo, he's not asking you to mess up his electronics, he simply wants you to turn up the volume. We call it norwenglish, broken mouth or mind rot depending on how fed up you are with scandinavian living.
