    I could use some help with a translation I' m trying out for a solo metal project. In Danish I think it translates as "Forbandede Sjæl" and in Norwegian "Forbannede Sjel". Just wondering if these would be correct tense, order, whatever. Reply or PM, thanks!

    I'm not a native speaker but fluent in Norwegian and it works fine. The Danish looks right also. For singular.

    Native norwegian speaker here. "Forbannede sjel" would translate to "cursed soul".

    Does that make sense?

    But no capital letters :)

    So it makes sense? From a speaking perspective? For example in context saying "(I am a) cursed soul" or some such, it would come out "forbannede sjel" and that wouldn't be incorrect? just making sure I have order/tense whatever right.

    In that context it would be "forbannet sjel". Exactly why I asked about the context :aok

    the s in sjel should not be capitalized in modern Norwegian, probably not even in Danish

    I under the capitalization, but I'm using this for a band name though so shouldn't they both be capitalized?

    And last but certainly not least, how would it be pronounced phonetically? For-ban-et shell, or for-bahn-eh shell, or what?

    I guess I also wonder about the context of saying the name of the band is "Cursed Soul" would it still be forbannet or forbannede? And how is the second form pronounced, for-bahn-eh-day?

    Only the first letter of the sentence should be capitalized, unless you're intending 19th century Danish (which would be cool of course)

    More "Um...I didn't ask for that lol" info...

    ^ Actually, regardless of the accusative case ending for jeoju/저주 "를" being omitted from the phrase for sake of simplicity and textbook spacing/띄어쓰기 not actually requiring that "curse" and "received" be spaced, there's no reason to add a hyphen to the conjugated particle suffix 은 when written in Romanized form, and as such under the current Revised Romanization it should actually be written Jeojubadeun Yeonghon

    As if it actually mattered in this thread ;)
