In a text rich with examples and usefulexplanations, Popperwell introduces the reader to the intricacies of theNorwegian spoken in both Oslo specifically, and eastern Norway in general.Following an introductory chapter which looks at the organs of speech andtheir constitution, Popperwell talks the reader through the pronunciation ofNorwegian vowels and diphthongs before furnishing them with the knowledgerequired to turn an understanding of written Norwegian into a successfulcognition of the way the language is spoken.
