Brian - Thank you very much. I really appreciated your reply.
You gave the Norwegian word which helps me to learn the writing style at that time. If I can become more familiar with the style and properly write the word I hope to be able to look up the English word using on-line dictionaries.
I would never have properly read the word "ungkarl". I looked at it as "?ungekarl" and I could never imagine the first letter as a "U".
