en olive eller en oliven?

Hej!! Jeg vil gerne ved, er det "en olive" eller "en oliven"?

olive -> en olive -> oliven -> oliver -> oliverne

(olive -> an olive -> the olive -> olives -> the olives)

eller

oliven -> en oliven -> oliven -> ???? -> oliverne

(olive -> an olive -> the olive -> olives -> the olives)

????

Tak!!

Hi, I found an on-line dictionary http://www.ordbogen.com which says that it is

oliven - olivenen - oliven - olivenerne eller olivenene

Sound weird though, especially "olivenen", so I guess we need a Dane to confrim this. In Swedish it is

oliv - oliven - oliver - oliverna.

Det er som HelenCarlsson sagde.

en oliven - olivenen - flere oliven - alle olivene(r)ne

Det lyder lidt mærkeligt, men det er rigtigt (så siger også Den Danske Ordbog)

Well, I actually failed in the last one (but I have edited my post now). This -nene ending sounds special :).
