Notes

  1. ^ a b c The [ð, ɣ, v] may be very light, i.e., they can be more like approximants than fricatives.
  2. ^ a b The word "hver" (everyone) is realised differently across dialects.
  3. ^ Vowels are long when stressed and followed by no more than one consonant double consonant, although exceptions abound.
