Norwegian: rise (in price)


Senior Member

How would you say "rise" (in price) in Norwegian? It is a noun. It is an antonym to "discount".

example: The price is $6 now, there is a rise from $5 in last week.

suggestions: stige, begynnelse, bakke, begynnelse, bestigning, lønnspålegg, motbakke, oppgang, oppstigning, skråning, stigning, økning

Thank you.

    When the context of prices has already been established, though, as in the given example, "økning" is sufficient (to me at least).

    Prisvekst is also good (Huffameg, so good!). However I sense a little difference between the two.
    I think prisøkning, denotes any increase from one value to a higher.
    Prisvekst is more like a long term growth. Prisvekst, i think, is also the most correct term for the phenomenon of price growth (unquantified).
