Why is the plural of book (bok) suddenly with a 'c'? Singular is bok, plural is böcker, right?
It's because it's a short vowel in the plural, which is indicated by doubling the consonant. Double k is written not as kk but as ck.
Ah, that sounds logical. Thanks a lot!
Why can't this be "Are reading" instead of "read"
Läser can mean either “are reading” or “read”. It depends on the context, I believe.
Is the "ch" sound cut off here? It sounds like she's just saying "oh"
Still want to know. Been noticing more and more
Normally the ch is silent
Unless it is stressed/emphasized, in which case the full word is pronounced.
