A colloquy between two old men in Foula:

Norn:
- Ja'rta, bodəna kåməna ro'ntəna (rotəna) Kåmba.
- Kwatə jāda?
- Dæfnajōr(n)a!
- Ja'rta, bota koməna ro'mpa [romba] Komba.
- Kwata ita?
- Stūraskītin!

Old Norse/Nordic:
- Hjarta, bátrinn er kominn runt um Kambinn.
- Hvat er þat [þetta]?
- Dauft eyra! (Dauf eyru!)
- Hjarta, bátrinn er kominn runt um Kambinn.
- Hvat er þat [þetta]?
- Stóri skítr!

English:
- My heart (my dear), the boat (a boat) has come round de Kaim
- What do you say?, prop. What is that?
- Deaf ear! (Big shit!)
