I thought 'én' or 'ett' meant one, and en just means 'a.' So, aren't we saying 'a of them sings' here? Thank you!
'en' and 'én' are both acceptable as 'one'. The accent seems to not be necessary.
So the sentence is 'one of them sings'
Thanks very much!
An easy way to think of it is 'en' can be either 'a' or 'one', but 'én' is specifically 'one'. For example, during emphasis.
Oh, that makes sense. It's very similar to the Dutch 'een', which means 'a' or 'one' vs 'één' which always means 'one'.
Very interesting, thank you!
It's still marking the accent as a typo
Look below for user: Deliciae's comment. They explain it well.
I don't even understand the construction of this sentence, to match the meaning "One of them sings."
The structure of the Norwegian sentence is exactly the same as that of the English sentence.
When to use "man", when to use "En" ?
They're interchangeable as impersonal subject pronouns, but only "en" works as an object pronoun and has a possessive form ("ens").
What about én? Is it also interchangeable with en? (when referring to the number one as in man)
"Én" only works as a number, and not as a translation of the pronoun "one" which translates to "en" or "man".
What exactly is "dem" in the sense of grammar? And how do I form it in the other persons (jeg, du, han,...)?
My English s*cks right now, sorry :D
"dem" is "them"
