    Hilarious :D I would just love an audio-guide to all those "no"- s. Although I speak Swedish, I think I am maybe using only about 6 ways of those no-s, but well that is lagom, so maybe I am all set :D #lagomisbest

    I laughed a lot with this post! Thanks Ragnhild Jonasdottir

    Like Krisztina Kursinszki mentioned I will also love to listen to an audio guide to understand the different "no"- s better. I also think that sometimes I get confused with the "mmm" sounds, as I never get if it's an affirmation or negation or if you are just listening.

    Well @... it can be all of those at once haha just kidding :D But yeah, not easy with that either. My family in Hungary thinks it is a little annoying how much I "mmm" while they are talking and I am just listening :D I always thought that it is very interesting how we communicate in different languages, there can be such interesting similarities and differences. :)

    ...and then you have "njae", which is a mix between "Ja" and "Nej"... means "maybe", "perhaps", "depends" or "I don't know"...
