"She is a woman."
Translation:Hon är en kvinna.
How are you supposed to pronounce kvinna exactly? Its hard to tell how she says it.
Swedish is a tonal language, so you must accent it like the voice does.
I'm pretty sure Swedish isn't tonal, it's just a language that cares about stress.
Swedish actually got a "pitch" accent. Similar to tonal language, just that in pitch only a few syllables have a distinctive tone instead of all. So yes, it's " a language that cares about stress" in your words.
Unlike English, Swedish didn't drop the initial "k" sound in words in which the sound is followed by another consonant sound. So you must pronounce the "k".
How do you tell the difference between "han" and "hon"? And I mean the sound, I know han means he and hon means she.
Is 'Ett' for non living things and 'En' for living things... Or am i wrong?
'ett' definitely is for objects and Yes you are right, but 'en' could be both for living things and object as well such as (en pojke=a boy) (a bird=en fågel) or even objects like (a dress=en klänning.) (a T-shirt=en tröja.)
No. The 'v' is pronounced like a 'v' in English (not 'w' as in wine). It sounds like the 'v' in vacation. :-)
Yes, the v in kvinna can sound a bit like f. It's because voicelessness tends to be contagious in some cases. You can hear both kfinna and kvinna, but most people aren't aware they say it like kf even if they do.
can someone tell me what i have to do to type the a with the accent in är?
On a Mac you just type the "Option" key, then the "u" to get the accent mark, and then you type the letter you want that accent to go on. On Windows it is of course more complicated. One good option is to install the US International Keyboard and then follow the instructions on the Internet about how to type that.
What is the difference between "en" and "ett"? I keep mistaking the two. :/
'en' and 'ett' both means a(n) in English. like (a boy=en pojke). (en älg=a moose). 'ett' is for neuter one, like (an apple=ett äpple). (an animal=ett djur).
kvinna is weird because kvinnor is the same when u say hon är en kvinnna and kvinnor is the women
