If it's like einkaufen, it includes a bit more than just food, more like the regular or weekly needs. I've translated it as "The man does the shopping", but Duo didn't like it.
What will be the verb to express he is going to shop for clothes, leisure etc .... ?
I would also like an answer to AlexMoby's question. How does the language change if I want to go shopping for something other than food?
Not in US English. You could say that someone "goes grocery shopping" or "gets groceries," but "doing grocery" sounds very odd.
idioms should have an asterisk or something so we don't get confused for nothing
I think the sentence should translate "The man shops" and then it would not be confusing
I don't know the translation in english. I would say "go shopping" Købe ind is not specifically used for food. It is the generic everyday shopping :
When you go to the supermarket on saturday to buy various things for the week, socks, toothpaste, food, shampoo, beer, zucchini, light bulbs etc...
