It has a different meaning than the original sentence.

hver dag = every day
hverdager = weekdays

What is more common: "en hverdag" or "en arbeidsdag"?


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

What is more common in English: a workday or a weekday? They describe different things, or the same thing according to different interests or reasons for speaking.

I guess a weekday is a workday, so is hverdag to arbeidsdag. Duo confirms it!

Whats the difference between ukedag and hverdager?


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

"Ukedag" is any day of the week, "hverdag" are working days, in Norway that's officially Monday through Saturday (excluding public holidays and Sundays), but as most people don't work Saturdays it is very common to think of Monday through Friday as the "hverdager".

Duolingo says that it should be "They workon weekdays" rather than "they work on weekdays". I'm a native English speaker and this seems wrong to me, but I could be wrong?

You're right, there was a typo - which is fixed now. Thanks! :)

Ukedager = hverdager + helger. Is it true?
