And drenge / drengen and pige / pigen
This is SO confusing! I get why you add the endings and can use then, but hearing them is almost impossible
Someone needs to pronounce stuff here like they actually open their mouth. That extra 'R' is just not there.
Is because we don't really say the "r" it's more like "jr". If that makes any sens. But ther is a HUGE difference between how people pronounce it, depending on where thay are from.
Dreng => Drenge Pige => Piger
So we just add 'e' for masculin and 'r' for feminine??
No, please read the Tips & Notes at the top of the lesson page.
Dreng has only one syllable and is a common noun and is regular so it gets 'e' at the end, as those usually do. If there were already an 'e', there would not be an additional 'e' added.
Pige is a multiple syllable noun that already ends in 'e' and gets 'r' added to it. If a multiple syllable noun does not end in 'e', then 'er' is usually added. Neuter nouns with one syllable usually don't get something added to it.
Here is a grammar reference that they are working on also: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/4277767
I can't tell drenge from dreng, is it just an extra "uh" that I don't hear?
I need a little help, I don't see the difference when its singular or plural.
