Abstract:

New Edition

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.
