Må gå nå...

"I must go now" in Norwegian is "Jeg må gå nå". See that nice succession of two letter -å words?

It inspired me to look up some other Norwegian -å words:

få -- get
gå -- walk
hå -- ho
lå -- lay
må -- must
nå -- now
på -- on, to
så -- so
tå -- toe

(These 3 are listed as Scrabble words but I can't find their definitions: kå, vå, and då. då might be a dialectical form of da, meaning therefore.)

So, how about this sentence?

Jeg skadet min hæl, så nå må gå på tå.

(
I hurt my heel, so now must walk on toe.) Anyone want to try for a longer run?
