Norn:

- Mårjan, ara du iņe?
- Jō!
- Sala slāg däin før ķø˙rən?
- Jo ģεra so, ģεra so!
Another version of the same colloquy:

- Morian arra doo enya?
- Yo!
- Skölaug dine cür füren?
- Yo gerasso gerasso!
(from B.Edmonston and Jessie M.Saxby's "The Home of a Naturalist")

Old Norse:

- Marion, ert þú inni?
- Ja! (Jú!)
- Skal ek ... þínar kýr?
- Ja (Jú), gera svá, gera svá!

English:

- Marion, are you in there?
- Yes!
- Shall I 'flit' your cows?
- Yes, do so.
