What is the difference between ett and en in swedish?
I see ett and en in front of different nouns when I am learning swedish. I know they both mean a or an, but I don't understand what one to use and why.
En is the common gender. Ett is the neuter gender. The word for used for a or an corresponds with the gender of the word. Here is a website about the use of genders http://blogs.transparent.com/swedish/the-logic-behind-swedish-noun-gender/
