Quite tricky trying to get used to the irregular plural spelling for 'men and 'boys'.
In case anyone is too young or doesn't remember in the old days the news used to come written on paper and then delivered to houses, often by children or teenagers, so that's what a newspaper is.
It's the same spelling with "drengen" and "drengene"? I hear them both as the same.
Yes, læser can mean "read", "are reading", etc. The verb doesn't require modifications to reflect changes in tense.
What is the difference between the boys read a newspaper and are reading? In the past this was always accepted.
