What is the difference between "lille" and "små"?
Små is the plural form (but not necessarily the e-form) of lille which is a irregular adjective, for example:
Den lille bog -> De små bøger
Huset er lille -> Husene er små
En lille mus -> Små mus
When do we use "smule" and when "lille"? Is it the same as in English "small" vs "little"?
I think smule =bit, lille= little
What does de mean in this sentence?
"de" means "the" in this sentence. I hope that helps.
Here, "de" is plural for "den/det" which means "the".
Den bog -> de bøger
Det hus -> de huse
When do we use de,and when do we use den/det?
de is plural. Den/det are singular
Why is "de" here not they? Why isn't it det or den?
"de" means both "they" and "the" (in case of plural nouns). It is not den, because bøger (books) is plural: "den lille bog" = the small book, but "de små bøger" = the small books.
Why isn't it "småle" for plural? Like "tosprogete forældre"?
