That's one hell of a sentence to type by ear.
anyone else got problems getting the numbers accepted with speaking? or is it just my bad danish?
I can never get it past "tredive" no matter how I say it...
Yep, won't accept it no matter how many times I try
So in a moment of frustration i recorded the audio in my studio and played it back for Duolingo and it still says its wrong
Yes. This is infuriating. I have to switch to no audio now to get past it
This is the most sexy counting I've ever heard.
Does anyone have reasoning to share that could explain "halvtreds," "halvfjerds," and "halvfems"?
It's a base 20 system. Halvtreds for example is short for 'half three times twenty', which makes sense if you read 'half three' as 'halfway between two and three'
That helps a lot, thanks to both of you!
Det var så lidt!
The Danish word should be spelled "hundrede", not "hundred".
Both hundred and hundrede are correct.
Cannot get this right
Seriously, what is the logic behind all these half-something half-something the Danish use? XD
