Norwegian term or phrase: veispringer .... Vei-S.pring.er den andre yngre..!?
An attempt was made to call someone a knight of the road - (addressed to a professional driver who did a kindness to an older couple). The word used was veispringer. This is the term and the part of a reply that dealt with that term. What does it mean, and did the word veispringer have other meanings or connotations? Thank you!

English translation:Knight of the road
Explanation:
Nothing more complex than "knight of the road" - Blå Ordbok gives springer as "knight", so "veispringer" is literally a "night of the road"

Hope this helps (award points if it helps)

Explanation:
Hallo Donna !

I have never heard the word veispringer before, could you give some more context.

The direct translation would be:
vei = road
springer = a person running

I made a google search and one on www.kvasir.no but I found no hits.

Give us more context !

Best regards from Tone
