As for every major region in Norway, some of the dialect words may pose a barrier for tourists not used to other dialects than the one spoken in Oslo. Several words have completely other meanings here than in other parts of Norway, and there are other words which you cannot find anywhere else. There is also a dictionary available if you already know some Norwegian. Some years ago, the Valdres dialect scored as "the nicest dialect in Norway" in a national radio programme.
 
 
''Examples of local words''
 
'''Squirrel''' - Norwegian: ekorn, Valdres: ikødn
 
'''All right''' (as in ''an all right person'') - Norwegian: grei, Valdres: snodig (which in Norwegian normally means strange/funny)
 
'''Lonely''' - Norwegian: ensomt, Valdres: aule
