agree  Gitte Gifford: Agree, yes but truly wondering how this word could come under Art/Literary:)

  -> Thanks, one wonders what the PJ looks like

agree  Christina Clark: Yes, or just 'nattøj'
38 mins
  -> sure but it was specified pajamas and "nattøj" covers or "uncovers" a lot of territory :-)

agree  PCovs: Definitely 'pyjamas' - if specified piece of bedroom wear. I agree with CDClark that it might just be 'nattøj', e.g. saying to a child:'Get into your pajamas' would often be translated this way.
