The people? Well, if they don't speak English, it's possible they're called "Norwegians." :fyi:

Your questions seem to get more and more strange. Where do these questions come from and why do they all involve gloves?

The English is not meant exclusively for native English speakers.

I wonder if "deleterious" would not be rather a difficult word for a lot of people.

It would be deleterious for my ego to try to define it. Let's try "pernicious" instead.
