"Alderen" sounds like "el an." Any tips on how to discern spoken Danish a bit more accurately?

Betyder det "this is the dawning of the age of Aquarius," eller "the age of the wine?" Mange tak.

"Alderen" on its own mean the actual chronological age of x. A long period of time is "tidsalder". A short period of time is "tidsrum".

One more thing, when talking about a specific long timeperiod in the past we often drop the "tids" so that the bronze age becomes "bronzealderen".

You could say that we are now in "internettets tidsalder".

How would you say "the elders"?

Well, I believe that "village elders" are "byældste" and "church elders" are "kirkeældste", and so on. Is that what you had in mind?
