Thoroughly enjoyed, and of course interesting for us geeks to read the differing grammatical interpretations. I just love the spirit of endeavour. I will give that text another good going-over and try to think about how to make my own story eventually using what I've learned here and from the lessons. It wasn't as impenetrable as I thought after my sojourn back into German and away from Nynorn :)

Thanks....

Wouldn't buk have i-mutation in plural?

Icel. bók / bækur
Faer. bók bøkur
Swe. bok/böcker
Gut. bouk/böykar

I also wonder what the basic trend is when it comes to modernisms. Do you make neologisms or take the international words?
If neologisms, do you follow the icelandic and faeroese model or make unique nynorn words?

I'm not a specialist in Shetland Nynorn, but umlauts didn't develop as well in the Northern Isles as it did in the rest of Scandinavian countries.

Neologisms in Nynorn may have different origins according to the variety of Nynorn you work on. Icelandic and Faroese loan-words are the most secure option. But I suppose it would not do much harm to have a few Scots, Latin and Gaelic loan-words in the language, as long as they're given a Norn touch. I think we really need to talk about this matter in a new topic. What do you guys think?

Hi Frederik,
Yes, I think that 'buk' should have i-mutation: buk/bøker.

We prefer to borrow international words, but creating neologisms is considered too. I tell you, making a new word out of old Shetlandic stuff is a very pleasant thing for us when it happens. You can see our logarithm text which gives a good example of how we do it, compared to Faroese, Icelandic and Danish: http://nornlanguage.x10.mx/index.php?txt/log

I'd agree on the buk > bøker one, since it existed already in ON: bók > bœkr (or bǿkr).
