About the Authors
  • In this volume, first published in 1963, Cambridge lecturer R. G. Popperwell provides a fascinating and highly accessible guide to the correct pronunciation of Norwegian. In a text rich with examples and useful explanations, Popperwell introduces the reader to the intricacies of the Norwegian spoken in both Oslo specifically, and eastern Norway in general. Following an introductory chapter which looks at the organs of speech and their constitution, Popperwell talks the reader through the pronunciation of Norwegian vowels and diphthongs before furnishing them with the knowledge required to turn an understanding of written Norwegian into a successful cognition of the way the language is spoken. Popperwell writes on the syllabic qualities of the language, the stresses most regularly used and the rhythmic qualities of spoken Norwegian. This book is both thorough and engaging, and will be of great use to any student of the Norwegian language.
