I am curious where is "IT" in answers?
You can see it in the default translation up top: "Is it the fifth today?"
However, it's possible to rephrase the sentence in ways that omits it: "Is today the fifth?"
Can it mean "It is the fifth (of the month) today"? Takk.
yes, that's the meaning that most people would assign to this sentence, given no context. It can also mean "is that your 5th "something" today?"
I'm curious what would be the way to say "is that the fifth (one) today?", as when you are drinking a beer, and someone asks if it's your fifth (when it's actually your twelfth).
You can actually use this exact sentence for that as well! Or "Er det din femte (tolvte) i dag?" Add a small gesture to the beer etc, and you're good to go!
I wish DL had accepted my first try, then. ;) Takk!
Audible for "den" in this sentence sounded like "n", so it was impossible to get the translation right on the first attempt.
It sounds fine to me on default speed, but speakers/earphones and audio settings can make a difference.
