Just one spoon in the restaurant?

It's not specified, but there's at least one.

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Eddie0606

    They just have one spoon and everyone shares it!

      It's like a description of a soviet restaurant xD

      what is the sound at the end of norsk "restaurant"? sounds like "ng" - am i correct?


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Deliciae

      Correct. It's a French loan word which has retained some of its original pronunciation.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Klaus650857

      Such a fancy place, I hear they sometimes even let the guests eat with it...


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/integra0

      Now, don't push it... Such a valuable piece is shown, not used! You don't put your hat on the Venus of Milo , do you?


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/WillOzbolt

      So the word for spoon and happen is the same?


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Deliciae

      Yup, spoon happens.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TheRatPatrol

      A communal spoon. Fascinating.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DanielJSorensen

      Jeg håper de har flere!


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/leif568200

      I have mispelled restauranten 2000 times


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Deliciae

      You are not alone.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Rain43363

      I would sure hope the restaurant had a spoon.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NattKullav1

      Bokmål - Restauranten har en/ei skje/skei.
      Nynorsk - Restauranten har ei skei.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Miles-Oliver

      What would the plural for skje be? Skjer?


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NattKullav1

      A spoon en/ei skje
      The spoon skjeen/skjea
      Spoons skjeer
      The spoons skjeene


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/.JEG6

      Just the one spoon. Everyone has to take turns sharing it.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TomFoolery14

      If they didn't, that would be kinda awkward


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Luke8781

      I should hope so!
