this language looks like someone put Swedish in a box and then accidentally sat on it.
That is really funny!
I don't understand the differences between dreng, drenge or drengen and pige pigen and piger, can anyone help?
dreng = boy
drengen = the boy
drenge = boys
(drengene = all the boys)
just a heads up, 'all the boys' would be 'alle drengene', 'drengene' is simply 'the boys' (:
I've only noticed now why this confused me - in English: oxen; brethren are plural nouns. So _en is The, and _et is also The in Danish?
_en suffix is ”the" for gendered nouns and _et suffix is "the" for neuter nouns.
Neuter nouns still have a gender, though. Use -en for en (common) words and -et for et (neuter) words. [2019/05/09]
Thank you the help, it was very useful
I can't tell the difference in pronunciation between 'pige' and 'piger.' Is the r silent?
with "pige" it's more like "piyuh" while with piger it's kind of like "piya"
there is not option of saying drink in english, so i keep getting wrong answer
Whats the difference between "boys and girls drink milk" and boys and girls are drinking* milk"
There is no difference. Both "drink" and "are drinking" are drikker. The distinction is really flimsy in English, anyway. [2019/05/09]
Is 'drikker' pronounced as you would in English? (draikker)?
Drikker is pronounced like this: http://da.forvo.com/search/drikker/da/
Hope that helps. ;)
Are you German
I typed pige instead of piger so made a grammar mistake but it got counted as a typo. Probably should be changed, thanks
I have a difficult time with the pronunciation--pige, pigen, liger, dreng, drengene. I understand what the written difference is--just can't distinguish the pronunciation difference
the word 'drink' is not available to choose.. only 'drinks' or 'drinking'
Same problem here
Yes. I tried "are drinking" and it was accepted.
Yeah so it is when you are leaning new this things. I AM also having hard time with the word Drengen,Drenge and pigen.piger ah ah so hard.
I typed drink instead of are drinking why is it showing it as wrong i thought both would work?
is anyone else slightly disturbed by this sentence
too much anime will do that to ya
Does anybody know why it is not "boys and girls are drinking milk"?
It seems okay to say that. Maybe there is no difference between the present tense and the continuous present tense, at least in Danish, at this level? (shrugs)
There is no mistake
I was saying it right and it was saying it was wri g what a scam
So what would be "The boys and girls are drinking milk"?
Is there a pronunciation difference between dreng and drenge?
u can listen pronunciations from there ---> https://translate.google.com.tr/#auto/en/Dreng
Yes. The letter "e" at the end of most words is pronounced as a short "ö" or like "ea" in "early".
