Why is it et and not en?
Because barn is neuter gender. You would say: barnet and not barnen, because then you start sounding Swedish :P
You can always check the gender here: ordnet.dk
"Then you start sounding Swedish..." and you don't want that hehe
How come I see this spelt børn?
Thank you :)
When will the voice start to pronounce "et" correct and bot as two distinct letters?
Interestingly, in parts of Britain children can be referred to as bairns. Presumably inherited from Danish, when Danes ruled large parts of Britain
