Feeling overwhelmed by the prospect of learning the vocabulary for body parts in Norwegian? Don’t be. If you’ve been studying this language for any amount of time, then you’re probably already aware that a good many Norwegian words sound oddly similar to English words, owing in part to their shared Germanic roots.

For example: “foot” in Norwegian is, well, fot. And how do you say “hand”? Hånd.

Of course, the pronunciation is something that might require some practice, but that’s why we’ve included audio for each word so you can hear how they’re pronounced by a native speaker. Just click the play button to hear them.
