What is the difference between "en" and "ett"??
This should help (http://www.swedishpress.com/content/en-or-ett-first-lesson-about-swedish-nouns) and nice profile pic.
Both are singular indefinite articles (like "a" or "an" in English), but unfortunately there's no way to tell if a noun should be used with "en" or "ett". So learn your nouns with their articles!
When in doubt, guess "en." Roughly 3 times out of 4, you'll have guessed correctly because "en" words are that much more numerous :)
Masculine and Feminine,like "a" and "an" They are used partly in the same words as in English. For Examble: Swedish:Ett äpple English:An apple Swedish:En sak English:A thing (It is the opposite in many Swedish words,in which the cognate of "an" is used in English,but the cognate of "a" is used in Swedish instead.
In Swedish the grammatical genders of nouns are called common and neuter, rather than masculine and feminine. A long time ago, Swedish had three genders, like German: masculine, feminine and neuter. But now the masculine and feminine have merged, except in some dialects, so we say Swedish nouns have either "common" or "neuter" gender.
Well you see, English has almost the same thing. An vs A. Only difference is En does not go before consonants, and ett does not go before vowels. I can't explain why this is like this, but I can give out some pointers I learned from a website prior to finding this comment.
If a word that (in English) goes after "the", it will either end in et or en. If it ends in en, then you use en for the article of said word. If it ends with et, you use ett for the article.
Ett example: Barnet (the child) = Ett barn (a child).
En example: Busken (the bush) = En buske. Hope this helped! UwU
