thank you so much for the video! your english is wonderful! could you explain when to use masse or mye? takk!

Thank you so much, love!! <333 “masse”, “mye” and also “mange” can be easy to confuse - but I’ll try my best to give you a quick & easy rundown!

“Masse” is actually sometimes used by people as a quantifier in the spoken language — but it’s actually not grammatically correct in the written language (and honestly, I’d advice against using it while speaking too, even though you’ll probably hear some natives saying it – it’s often looked upon as a “childish” mistake to make). It is, however, a noun - and actually translates into “mass” or “matter”. So things like “brain matter” would be “hjernemasse” (lit. “brain mass”) (ok that’s…a tiny bit nasty - but I think you get my point!) 

You can, however, use the phrase “en masse” like this:

“Vi fikk en masse fisk.” - lit. “We got ‘a mass’ of fish.” 

-

“Mye” is a quantifier you use when you’re dealing with uncountable nouns - similar to the English “much”.

Har du mye kaffe igjen?” - “Do you have much(/a lot of) coffee left?”

Jeg spiser mye ris.” “I eat much(/a lot of) rice.”

You would also use “mye” together with verbs:

“Løper du mye?” - “Do you run much(/a lot)?”

-

“Mange” is a quantifier you use when you’re dealing with countable nouns - similar to the English “many”.

Han har mange venner.” - “He has many friends.”

“Jeg drakk mange kopper kaffe.” - “I drank many cups of coffee.”

I hope that cleared things up!! c:

  • my sister: you know what would be great?
  • my sister: if Team Family didn't blow the shit out of Oceanside and steal their stuff
  • my sister: AND IF BETH WAS AT OCEANSIDE

you try.

you try again. even if it’s hard. even if you don’t see a point. you are important. you matter. you deserve a life and you deserve to be happy.

i know its exhausting. i know it seems easier to be gone but its not.

don’t look for a way out. look for a way through. you will find it. you will make it. things will change. maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow but they will.

you are worth the fight to stay alive.
stay.
