Norwegian BokmålEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Old Norse múrr, from Latin murus

NounEdit

mur m (definite singular muren, indefinite plural murer, definite plural murene)

  1. a wall (a free-standing barrier, typically made of bricks, stone or concrete)
    En vegg av tre er mindre solid enn en mur av stein.
    A wall made of wood is less solid than a wall made of stone.

Usage notesEdit

Norwegian uses two different words for "wall". One, "mur", refers to independent outdoor structures used to fortify and delineate. The other, "vegg", is used to refer to the walls of a building, regardless of its location and material composition. Both are occasionally used metaphorically, "mur" more so. "Mur" can also refer to the type of material such walls are typically made of, hence the possible construction "murvegg", meaning the wall of a house composed of brick or concrete.

Norwegian NynorskEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Old Norse múrr, from Latin murus

PronunciationEdit

NounEdit

mur m (definite singular muren, indefinite plural murar, definite plural murane)

  1. a wall (of stone, concrete or similar material)
    Ein vegg av tre er mindre solid enn ein mur av stein.
    A wall made of wood is less solid than a wall made of stone.

Usage notesEdit

  • The words mur and vegg are both translated into English as wall. However, they are widely distinguished in the following manner: only mur is commonly used for freestanding walls. Only vegg is commonly used for the walls of a building, whether internal or external. Mur is restricted to stone or concrete walls, whereas vegg is used regardless of material. A wall made from brick or stone can be called a murvegg.
