EtymologyEdit

Ultimately from Old Norse verǫld, from Proto-Germanic *weraldiz.

PronunciationEdit

NounEdit

verden c ( singular definite verdenen or verdnen, plural indefinite verdener or verdner)

  1. world

DeclensionEdit

Usage notesEdit

Not inflected when used as a proper noun; thus the best father in the world translates as verdens bedste far, not *verdnens bedste far, which would mean "the best father in some particular world". On the other hand, the world of fashion, the world I live in becomes modeverdnen, den verden jeg bor i, respectively.
