It can mean both, but in this case it it means "the duck". The sentence "der er en anden and" means "there is another duck". "Du skal vælge mindst én anden person" -> "you must choose at least one other person".
"Anden" can also mean "second", e.g. "second place" -> "anden plads".
Tak! Can anden also mean "different"? E.g. in languages like Dutch and German different and other often have a similar meaning, also in the adverbial form.
There is actually a small difference in pronunciation according to what meaning "anden" has. Sadly the voice doesn't distinguish between them at this time
I agree. The way it is pronounced by the software here sounds like "other", whereas when you are pronouncing "the duck", you put more pressure on the first syllable, making it sound like "and-en"
I am sure I have seen "ænd". Is that an alternative spelling? Or does it change for the definite form?
Having just completed Dutch, I thought life would be easier here. Perhaps not!
How do I know that "spiser" is "eat"/"eats" or "is eating"? Is there any difference between present simple and present continuos?
why is it not the "bread", i am having trouble understanding when one uses the before the noun and when we don't. thank you
