Usage notes

Note the present tense form and alternative paradigm in brackets, the brackets indicate that these forms are optional for students only and are not allowed in official texts. These forms are either conservative (from or close to traditional Nynorsk) or radical (from or close to Bokmål) and are in Norwegian called klammeformer ("bracket forms") and originated from the idea to eventually fuse Bokmål and Nynorsk into one written language. This idea was officially abandoned in 2005, thus the system with such optional forms was abolished in Bokmål, but was kept in Nynorsk.
