"The boy has a book."
Translation:Pojken har en bok.
En kille is just an other word for a boy. Though I would say it is more informal like the word kid. It can also be used for grown-ups and would then be translated into guy.
What is the difference between "En" and "Ett" At first I thought that "En" was used for alive nouns, but this sentence disproved that. Is "en" "a" and "ett" "an"?
Nouns in Swedish (and Danish too) belong to either a common (-en nouns) or neuter gender (-ett nouns). Depending on the gender (which usually you'll have to learn,) you use the different articles and definite endings. en pojke (pojken) [common; -en noun], ett äpple (äpplet) [neuter; -ett noun]
Is there anyway to distinguish the gender of the word by looking at it, or must you memorize the genders?
There really isn't any particular logic behind it, so you'll just have to memorize, I'm afraid. There are however couple of rules that might be helpful. Words related to persons/living things/professions are typically common 'en' nouns: en pojke, flicka, man, kvinna, fotograf, programmerare, hund, häst, anka. (Exception: 'barn' (child) is 'ett'!)
Also, if you have to guess: around 75% of all Swedish nouns are common 'en' nouns!
They are for different word genders. Common gender words use the "en" article and neuter gender words use the "ett" article.
