If the Swedish text read "det HÄR är ett äpple," it would translate into "this is an apple." The way the Swedish sentence is written, it sounds like an answer to the question: what is that? (Vad är det där)
Not necessarily but it's common to swallow consonants at the end of words when speaking.
There's 2 genders in Swedish- ett (which is neuter) and en (which is for masculine AND feminine words). Like the way we say 'a' and 'an' in English, except there's no real rule to figure out which words use ett and which use en. You just have to kinda memorize which goes with the noun you're learning.
I didn't hear any distinction between the first three words (I heard "de-ett äpple"). Is it correct to blend them together like that?
I guess that this sentence would sound something like "De-e-et eple" (perhaps with some Es exchanged for Äs depending on the dialect) if a Swede would say it in natural speed. We like to shorten words link them to each other.
Actually, it would sound rather unnatural to pronounce every single letter.
Is there a reason why some words get "ett" and some get "en" ? Is it like "het" and "de" in dutch? :)
What is difference between 'de' and 'dem'? And does 'äter' mean eats AND eating?
De = they
Dem = them
Swedish doesn't differ between "eats" and "is eating", so both are "äter".
No, "Det" could be for anything. "De" either means "they" or (in some cases) "the" for words in plural.
Is the tool-tip for "det" incorrect or...? A quick Google suggested that det does not mean "what". Hardly makes sense that that, what and this would be the same word
It would be correct in for example a sentence like "That is what I said" which in Swedish would be "Det var det jag sa"
Hints are only hints to what words that particular word could be translated into. Not all hints are necessarily correct...
Is my ear correct when I hear that the vowel ä sounds different in är from äpple?
It tought me that är means are but here it means is. Could someone explian this to me?
The verb doesn't change in Swedish: jag är, du är, hon är 'I am, you are, she is'.
isn't a and 1 kinda the same thing...like... I have A notebook. I have 1 notebook. wounldt be the same?
Why is "it is an apple" incorrect? Instead i got "that is an apple" as the answer.
