    Wow, everyone's putting the 'mitt', din' after the noun (and an article thrown in). eg. 'navnet mitt' instead of 'mitt navn'. Is this how Norwegian works?

    Yes and no. You can say "mitt navn":

    mitt navn er Brett - My name is Brett

    But you can also say:

    navnet mitt er Brett - My name is Brett (lit. the name of mine is Brett)

    Of course the more commen way to say "my name" is:

    Jeg heter Brett - My name is Brett (lit. I am called Brett)

    Not even Danish uses the "navnet mitt er..." word order. Though, my knowledge of Danish is lesser than of Swedish. But, that is why it surprised me, because neither of Norways neighbours use it, so it was quite interseting to see. I wonder if Icelandic uses a similar word order. Norway is Iceland's prime Scandinavian heritage, isn't it? It is often said that Icelandic is what all the Scandinavian languages would have been like a thousand years ago. Maybe that's an exageration, but there's at least truth in Icelandic being the most archaic of all these languages.

    Yes certainly, one understands words here and there of icelandic, in the otherwise nice encrypted nordic feeling it has got to it. Say typically old Swedish/Nordic names, and it all sound like icelandic to me Einar, Gunnar, Orvar, Ragnar....

    Well, since "Heter" is a verb, it's kind of difficult to translate it satisfactory to english, which doesn't uses a verb here...

    In fact in many movies, perhaps not the latest ones, I have seen this wordorder, especially when sounding serious and "ponders poetically"

    I think noone have any problems with understanding this: "bilarna mina voro gr
