After a bit of research:

A plate = En tallerken

Plates = Tallkerkner

The plates = Tallerknerne

I'm guessing it's not due to misspelling, on your part, but rather mistyping, however, I'm just quickly going to correct:

Plates = Tallerkner

I believe the correct spelling is: A plate = En tallerken Plates = Tallerkener The plates = Tallerkenerne However most Danes will pronounce it how you spell it.

According to DSL (The Danish Language and Literature Society) both "tallerkner" and "tallerkener" are acceptable ways to spell 'plates'. Personally, I've always spelled it "tallerkner".

If someone doesn't have a plate then buy it!! Or you never gonna eat

I hear the following:

  • single word pronunciation: /telergnone/

  • full sentence pronunciation: /telergnene/

So which one is correct? Or both?

    I think it's funny in English, we could still say Have you any plates? Have you any wine? and it would be correct, but just an older way of speaking.

    you should also accept the translation dish and not only plate

    OK, so: En tallerken = a plate. But what is "the plate"? Tallerkenen?
