Should it be 'Pigens onkel' rather than 'Pigens onklen'? It seems to me that the given sentence is 'The girl's the uncle ... ', which is weird.

I believe this would definitely be something good to report to the team :) hopefully they can clear it up.

I have, but I'm usually not sure (wrt the Danish sentences) whether what I report is in fact an error, so I seek clarification on the boards as well.

I'm from Denmark, and yes it should be "Pigens onkel" because you simply can't say it the other way around :)
