pleas tell me- when to use word with -en and when without it like- drenge, dregnene... Both mean ,,boyS" ) boys, the boys).. I read the lesson but my english is not very good and I can't understand the difference between this two words...
Dreng = Boy
Drengen = The boy (a specific boy)
Drenge = Boys (more than one boy or boys in general)
Drengene = The boys (specific boys)
I have a question. The danish pronunces really just as Duolingo does? sometimes I miss the silent sound in '-en' ; esp. drengen, hunden.
Their is no clear rule in danish to use (en)&(et) at the begining and the end of the naun but thuoght the time /reptition of the word you can understant when you use thous ..... Generally :80% of the word use en and 20% useit.
Yes. As addition to your saying... -it is for neutral things and -en is for subjects with a gender. But still quite random like so many things in the Danish language.
Could you tell me please what's the difference of pronunciation between "mand" and "mænd"?
I think that mand is pronounced like mAHnd (like the English word "on"), and mænd is pronounced more like mEHnd (like the English "mend").
