Bladet means concomitantly the leaf and the blade or have I missed any thing ?
I didn't see your answer until just now because DuoLingo hasn't been giving me notifications when someone replies to me.
I've heard the 'd' pronounced in the definite form, although I know it's usually silent when indefinite. Is it more common to hear it in the definite? It's hard to tell whether the robotic voice gets the pronunciation right in most circumstances.
