How do you say good morning in Norwegian

 How do you say good morning in Norwegian 




“God morgen!” is appropriate at any time/situation you might use the equivalent English expression. Gender- and formality-neutral (neither informal nor formal).


NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH:

1) “Morn!” A general greeting; Hi or Hello. Probably evolved from the ‘good morning’ one, but this one can be used at least through late afternoon, if used at all.

Often followed by a name or appellation, e.g. “Morn, folkens!” = Hiya, folks! Not very common nowadays. Used mainly by older people or with some degree of irony. The obnoxious morning person who thinks he’s a lot funnier than he actually is might use an expression like this coming into work, while everyone else is grumbling over their coffee…

Can be doubled: “Morn-morn!” which is even more likely to be humorous or sarcastic. With a specific intonation this evokes stuck-up, wealthy yacht-owners and their ilk.

Come to think of it, “Morn!” usage is also rather gendered; in my experience and expectation, more likely to be used by (adult or older) men.

2) “Morna!” Because languages are ornery beasts, this one means the opposite: Goodbye. Informal, akin to Bye-bye or even Buh-bye, now.

Not hugely common, and declining in usage, I think, but you do hear it. Sometimes from smaller kids, or as part of a Goodbyeing Incantation. (When you keep saying goodbye while the other party is for whatever reason taking forever to leave: ‘Bye! See ya soon! Yeah, have a good one! Buh-bye now….”)

Can also be sarcastic: One politician famously celebrated her party’s good results in an election by gleefully calling out “Morna, Jens!” to her supporters and on national television; said Jens (Stoltenberg) being the prime minister and head of a rival party at the time. The US-English equivalent might be, “Adios, [first name]!”
