Would "Vi klarer ikke det" have the same meaning or is that not correct? I'm sometimes confused about the placement of ikke.
Is this a correct understanding:
Jeg tror ikke det = I don't think so
Jeg tror det ikke = I don't believe it
I keep expecting there to be questions on these. Anyway, clarifying, is klare more about other restrictions than actual ability?
You're a saint for answering all my questions. What's the difference between klarer and kan?
'klarer ikke' means you could try, but you're not really able to do it very well at the moment. So you don't have the ability at the time.
'kan ikke' can have several meanings depending on the context
Not having enough knowledge or skill to try (I can't speak greek)
Simply being unable to perform the task (I can't fly)
In some cases: Not being allowed to (I can't stay up after bedtime)
"Jeg klarer ikke å danse nå" = "I'm not able to dance now"
"Jeg kan ikke danse" = "I can't dance"
