14. The little Norweign I know is quite arcane - they're phrases from the late

ninetheen century, when most of the Norweign "sod busters" (my family) immigrated to Minnesota and North Dakota. Unfortunatly, for the most part the Norweign language hasn't evolved though the subsequent generations - so we all sound like we're misunderstanding phases from the 1890's. Like I said, you can still hear people mutter "Uff Da" around here.
