  1. Cristina:

    Hi, there seems to be a tiny mistake in your video associated to this post:

    In the video, you mention the masculine and the neuter forms of 4, while showing the number 5 for “fjögur”, and from there onward, the image and the sound are out of sync.

  2. Cristina:

    Also, “tuttugu” is never mentioned 🙂
