Format: Paperback
This is a very good norwegian dictionary. It's small and useful and it provides the gender of the nouns! (very important). However I haven't seen yet any similar dictionary of norwegian, swedish or danish which provides the verb forms, or at least its stem. So you will need a more proffessional book if you are serious learning these things.

I dont speak Norwegian but am about to start to learn. I found this book very helpful to understand written Norwegian, it has a handy phrase section but to speak norwegian you really need to learn. What I found most helpful was the food and drink section. This was really helpful to explain to my Norwegian boyfriend what we were eating in England and vice-versa.
This book is best used as a reference aid not to teach you Norwegian.

I find I get more out of this small dictionary when using it in conjunction with common phrase books. It's not the most comprehensive dictionary but it certainly meets my own needs.

5.0 out of 5 stars believe me, this one works 25 Aug. 2001
By Terje Liljendahl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I travelled to Norway in the summer of 2000. Because I am from Copenhagen, Denmark, originally, I knew that anybody there who knew Norwegian would also be able to understand Danish. This is however an awkward situation for both speakers of the languages due to several pronunciation changes, and it can be said jokingly that Norwegians sometimes can't understand Danes. If you are a speaker of Norwegian, Swedish, or Danish, the book probably won't cause much trouble. Even English speakers are surprised on occasion to learn that almost everybody who speaks one of those three languages natively also knows English. But, if you are determined to learn the language, this dictionary will serve as a great source of vocabulary. It would be best for travel, though; students who seek the grammatical aspects of the language should try another dictionary. The words listed are commonly heard, and this book boosts Norwegian vocabulary greatly. There are also sections on food, conversion tables, and short grammar tables, although the latter are not very well explained. For the price, this is a very good selection to choose.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent pocket resource 5 Sept. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Family of four used this frequently in July 1999, 20 day trip to Norway. Only once did it not contain the word we were searching for. Even if word desired is not listed, most likely a coorelated word will be that enables one to figure out what the unlisted word means.

2.0 out of 5 stars For travellers not for readers 23 Jan. 2000
By Jesse Thorstad - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book was designed principally for Norwegians learning English, not the other way around. It makes a fine travel dictionary to carry with you in Norway. But if you are hoping to read a Norwegian text, don't count on this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Help 18 Nov. 2000
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am Norwegian and this year I went there to see the family and all. I brought along this book, and it helped me a whole lot. It even had a nice blank place at the back where you could write the words you learned along the way. It helped me a whole lot!

1.0 out of 5 stars lost for words 1 July 2003
By james g dewsjimijimi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I visited some friends of mine in Norway about a year ago and got this book before i went . It really was not any help to me though . Most of the words that are in it are out dated and not used in Norway today . I also tried to use this dictionary to translate letters that my friends had sent and it is more confuseing than helpful . Might be ok for someone that speaks Norwegian , but for an English speaker i find to be no real help .
