Songs on LT that either have no category in the Languages section or do have one but the number of songs are only a handful.

Well you know my thread on rare languages in the mod's room, phantasmagoria. The songs there would be my suggestion to add to this list.

I was just thinking about that, I'll add them then.

Does it differ much from normal Romani? If not it might make sense to put it into the general Romani category.

As it's your native language you may know more songs in it - if you add two more we can add a category for it.

Well, transcription might take time but I will still try.

Not quite, for example, in Sognamål the word "frå" would look like "frao". Song Til Stormen is based on a poem written in a more archaic form of Norwegian Nynorsk, which is sometimes referred to as "Høgnorsk" (High Norwegian), since it is closer to the Norwegian spoken in mountainous areas and therefore also looks similar to Sognamål.

Oh, thanks for the info. It wasn't me who did the categorization. I hardly speak standard Norwegian (I understand a bit of it in its written form, but only when using a dictionary...).
So I guess that entry should better be re-categorized as Norwegian?

Yes, it should indeed be re-categorised as Norwegian Regular smile
