"Sorry, I am not welcome."
Translation:Undskyld, jeg er ikke velkommen.
other than vocab practice, i am racking my brain for an example when this sentence might be used in practice. any ideas?
When you enter a party you were not invited to, and you realize your mistake.
That seems like a pretty far-fetched example to me. I don't know. :-)
By the way, many people seem to mix up the difference between "welcome" and "welcomed" in English. Welcome as a verb with the past participle "welcomed" is an active verb and entails shaking hands with someone or otherwise greeting them as they arrive. Whereas "welcome" is more a state of mind.
Also, generally, a person doesn't decide for themself whether they are welcome or not. Although, of course, you can declare yourself unwelcome if someone else has made it obvious to you that you aren't wanted in a particular place at a particular time. But, for the most part, I would think that welcome wouldn't be used all that often in the first person.
Why would anybody downvote this comment? Downvoting is supposed to prevent or make it possible to weed out dumb, snarky or ill informed comments. This is none of those.
Some people just go around downvoting comments, whether they're just jokes or straight up helpful and correct answers to grammar related questions, so don't think about it to much man, some people just have nothing better to do, no worries :)
If you report it using "My answer should be accepted.", then the people who can fix it will see it.
is ikke pronounced with a k or a g? For a second opinion I looked on google translate and it sounds something like a g.
"Undskyld" is mostly used when you are apologizing for something you are guilty of like "sorry I was late" and it is also used as "exuse me" = "undskyld mig". An example of "beklager" could be are staff in the grocery store saying "beklager, vi har ikke mere mælk" = "sorry we don't have anymore milk".
How are we supposed to know what order these words go in? In French they don't translate literally. Isn't it the same here?
Word order is one of those things where there are some rules which can help but where it's mostly just a matter of getting a feel for it over time.
