brøler

Norwegian BokmålEdit

Etymology 1Edit

Possibly from a Middle Low German noun, from a verb meaning "howl, bellow" (compare German Low German bröllen). This would make it cognate to German Brüller (joke, something funny, literally roarer); English howler (hilarious joke”, “painfully obvious mistake) is formed the same way.

NounEdit

brøler m (definite singular brøleren, indefinite plural brølere, definite plural brølerne)

  1. A severe blunder; a foolish error, especially one made in public.

Etymology 2Edit

VerbEdit

brøler

  1. present tense of brøle
