sounds like a movie line. haha

exactly what i was thinking


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

Is this a figure of speech, implying revenge? Or is this literal? 'Getting him back,' as if back onto a sports team? (Or something.)


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

I was wondering this, too. 'Get him' back as in getting revenge on him? Or perhaps he's been kidnapped by a cult, or brainwashed by an evil woman? :-D Or maybe, as in English, it can mean both?

That's exactly what I was going to ask. Since this is an old thread we probably won't get an answer.

Useful in all Norwegian kidnapping scenarios.

Is Matt Damon lost again?

We have to take him back. Why is my answer wrong?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/CheshireCat75

I think it would be "vi mâ tå ham tilbake"


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

I think it's actually "må ta."


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

What about "We must take him back"


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

How would one say "We must get back to him"? Im not sure what the difference would be.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/akamillan0

I think "Vi må få tilbake til han".


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RodU20

So, difference between har and må is.....?


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

As far as I understand, har = have (own sth), må = have to (must do sth)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Deanne145274

Can one translate "ma" as "must"?
