Lesson 4 - 4

Combining verbs

Fun fact: verbs can be combined. Not only in Norwegian of course. Check out these English phrases:

I like to eat fish.

I love to play football.

The verbs are underlined.

We have already seen these two verbs in Norwegian: like, elske.

And in Norwegian it works in exactly the same way!

I like to eat fish. = Jeg liker spise fisk.

I love to play football. = Jeg elsker spille fotball.

So the formula is that the first verb goes in present tense (if we are talking about the present), and then the second verb goes in its infinitive form, with the infinitive marker (), exactly as it does in English.

You should be able to translate these two now:

You like to eat much.

I love to talk fast.
