In an earlier sentence the translation was "endnu ikke en kvinde". So, is it possible to say "De er endnu ikke doktorer", or why is it wrong?

i think the placement might have something to do with the meaning. endnu could be "even" or "yet," depending on if it's "they are not even doctors//de er ikke endnu doktorer" versus "they are not doctors yet//de er ikke doktorer endnu"

'Doktorer'? Ehm, no. 'Læger' is more correct Danish. 'Doktorer' is not wrong, I've just never heard anyone say it.

I suppose 'Laeger' is just a medical doctor, while 'doctor' suggests any kind of academic 'doctorat'
