The LEXIN dictionaries are developed for minority-language pupils in primary and secondary education, as well as adult second-language learners. The entry words are selected with these target groups in mind. The dictionaries consist of Norwegian words and expressions that are useful to know when you live in Norway. In the dictionaries, you will find information about which part of speech the word belongs to, simple definitions and examples of common use. In addition, you can see how the word is inflected and pronounced. You can also listen to the contents of the dictionary in Norwegian (Bokmål and Nynorsk) with speech synthesis.


The Norwegian LEXIN project is based on the Swedish LEXIN dictionaries. The LEXIN dictionaries are developed especially for minority-language immigrants with little or no experience with the use of dictionaries or other language resources.
