Barn, Barnen, and Barnett
What is the difference between those three? I am confused which one means child/children/the child/ the children...Can someone tell me? Thanks
Barn = a child or children (just any children).
Barnen = the children (so specific ones, not just any, although it can also be used in a general sense, just like you can say "Think of the children" in English and not mean specifically Sally and Joe).
Barnet (note just one t) = the child.
Hope this helps! :-)
It could be confusing with the same word for singular and plural. But you can always tell from the context which one it is, for example:
my child = mitt barn
my children = mina barn
