Drikker, drikk, og drikke, help!
-Could anyone explain to me the difference between three words: drikker, drikk and drikke and how to use them?I don't understand.
- Thanks for help!
It all depend on context, otherwise you won't know if it's the verb or the noun.
- The verb: Å drikke, drikker, drakk, har drukket, and the imperative: 'Drikk!'
- The noun: En drikk, drikken
I don't really understand, but it means that depending on the case of the sentences, the three words: drikk, drikke and drikker are used differently, right?
- En drikk: A beverage (noun)
- Å drikke: To drink (verb)
As they share spelling for some tenses/conjugations you have to see or hear the word used in a sentence in order to figure out if it's the noun or the verb.
jeg drikker - i am drinking
en drikk - a drink / a beverage
jeg skal drikke - i shall drink / i am going to drink
"er" is used in the same way as "ing" in English or as plural.
So "stopper" can mean both stops and stopping.
