Countdown to Publication: Fun Fact 28--Vocabulary List: Danish Words
There are a good number of Danish words in The Girl Who Fell From the Sky. I just noticed that most of the words are food words. Below is a primer. (And please note that pastry in Danish is not called a Danish!)
- franskbroed = white bread (nothing at all like Wonder Bread by the way).
- rugbroed = rye bread
- wienerbroed = pastry
- marzipan = marzipan
- stille = silent
- hellig = holy
- frikadeller = yummy meatball patty
- kys = kiss
- Jeg elsker dig. = I love you.
Stay tuned for the definition of the best word of all in the Danish language (and possibly any language) -- hygge!
