Hygge/hyggelig » answer
by gabs81, 2015-01-25, 02:55  like dislike  Spam?  89.71.232....
It's about the word hygge/hyggelig which seems like a pretty unique concept in Danish language.

If you can, please tell me in what situation on your daily basis would you say that something is hyggelig? What things/objects/situations/people/places/other concepts may be considered hyggelig? If you think about hygge as a noun and hyggelig as an adjective, what do you normally picture/see in your eyes?

How do English translations of this word ("cozy, warm, nice, pleasant") correspond to its real Danish nature? Are they pretty accurate or does it depend on situation/on what is described as hyggelig? Are there any nice synonyms in Danish or maybe even in English that you think are nicely corresponding? Do you think hygge is connected with your culture/country in some way?

Could you say what is definitely or what is rather NOT hygge(lig)? With what objects/situations would you not use this word (when it feels awkward, unsuitable, pointless)?

Would you be able to make up several sentences with both hygge and hyggelig (with English translation, if possible) so that they show different usage of the concept itself?

Thank you in advance.

Which are defined as: "i retning mod bagbords / styrbords side" - Den Danske Ordbog

lead into these english nautical terms:
- aport      (adverb)
- astarboard (adverb)

Which are defined as: "Over to the port / starboard side." - Wikipedia: glossary of nautical terms
The Wikipedia glossary of nautical terms says: some of it's terms "remain...
