  5. "You are not women."

"You are not women."

Translation:Dere er ikke kvinner.

November 8, 2015



What is the difference between 'dere' and 'du'. I don't understand.


Dere is for 'you' but for a group of person and 'du' is for 'you' for you alone, you and i !


Why is ikke not in the end

[deactivated user]

    Ikke (not) usually negates verbs and in this form, it comes after the verb. Examples are below.

    Han er ikke... (He isn't...)

    Hun leser ikke fantasy romaner. (She doesn't read fantasy novels.)

    When it negates the noun, it comes before it like in the sentence below.

    Jeg er en mann, ikke en gutt. (I am a man, not a boy.)

    When an objective pronoun is used, it's placed at the end of the sentence.

    Du liker meg ikke. (You don't like me.)
