I saw this sign on my usual walking path on campus.
Takrasfare... I know that "fare" means "danger". But "takras"? I begin running through my inventory of related works. Tak = ceiling or roof. Ras = ????, rasende = furious. Furious roof danger? Maybe? It dawns on me that I am walking on path of danger, and I know only enough Norwegian to know that I am in danger but not enough to know what kind of danger I'm in. I need to know either more or less Norwegian in cases like this. Right now, I know just enough to be worried.
"Takras", I found out later, means snow and ice sliding from roofs. Leave it to Norway to have a special word for this!
