i think of whiles ..like whiles away the time

In one example Duolingo insists that ‘we are resting ‘ is ‘vi hviler os’ but in this example ‘hviler’ is not followed by ‘ham’. Why??

I was thinking the same thing except i assumed it would be han hviler sig or something


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GeorgeKatz1

Would "Han hviler ham" be wrong?

is this like ´he rests´ or like ´he sleeps the eternal sleep´?

Hviler = rests, as in lying on a couch or something

Hviler i fred/for evigt/evig tid = resting in peace, resting forever, dead. Also "Her hviler Peter", but the context is pretty clear in that case.

Wouldn't one of the translations also be "He will rest"? I remember reading that the present tense is usually used to express the future in the explanations for one of the previous exercises.

Why not "He is having a rest" which sounds much more natural?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JKramer08

It only sounds more natural in British English. In American we might say "He is resting," but "He is having a rest" sounds incredibly stilted.

the wordbook says you have to say "hvile ud http://dade.dict.cc/?s=hvile also a reflexive "hviler sig ud" is suggested

is that correct or the duo Version?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RyagonIV

You don't have to say "hvile ud". :)

I guess you're German, no? "Ruhen" und "ausruhen" werden beide genutzt, wobei "ruhen"/hvile dem English "rest" entspricht, und "ausruhen/hvile ud übersetzt man eher mit "relax", "take a rest" oder sogar "take a nap".

Duo accepted viler... It's okay?

Having trouble with mnemonics from Danish to English and vice versa. Am using reville as opposite to hviler

Why was it "Vi hviler OS," but not "Han hviler SIG"?
