Difference between pratar and talar? My friend says it might be the difference between chatting and giving a talk to and rarely uses talar outside of this giving a presentation or telling someone off context.
It is "tala - speak" and "prata - talk".
In many cases they are directly interchangeable but not always.
'Talar' is used sligly more fomally while 'prata' belongs to colloquial swedish.
The language is not hard to write but difficult to speak
For me and super easy to talk, reminds me a little of the Italian.
It sounds to me like "talar" is pronounced like "toe-lar", is that right? I would have thought that would have been spelled "tålar."
No, but the Swedish long A-sound is not like long A from German, Dutch or French for example. Think of it as the A-sound from words like far and bar.
In Swedish, do you normally capitalize the first letter of a language?
Only if it starts a sentence. The same goes for nationalities, days of the week, months. We only capitalize names (and we don't view those words as names).
You would capitalize the name of the country though. So Sverige / svenska
i think that Duolingo moves so quick, it should practice the words more with you before moving on. It is really difficult!
you can practise each level several times, if you think it's going too fast!
I'd suggest 3-5 times each, at least.
WTF. I said it and it didn't work.
how do you say, "The MEN?"
Is Mannen and Männen the same?
Mannen means the man
Männen means the men
Yay, I'm finally starting to get that. Thanks btw. The whole Man Män thing was kind of confusing. And yet, this is by far the least confusing language
totally. Spanish is kinda confusing for me.
Sound quality makes it sound as if it could be "Mannen talade engelska" too
I do not agree. At least the old TTS which I still have pronounces a clear "r" in "talar".
Talar is both "speak" and "speaks"? Like for "he speaks well" and "he can speak well", you can just use talar? Sorry if it's a silly question
No question is silly!
No, talar means speak/speaks in present tense. In the sentence "he can speak well", "can" is present tense and "talar" is infinitive, thus "tala" in Swedish.
Its very confusing cuz english isnt my first language
does "ska" mean language? I guess "engel" means England or something related, and so "engelska" means "language from English" basically right?
Not really. Think of it more like the difference between "Italy" and "Italian", or "Sweden" and "Swedish" -- just how -an doesn't mean "language", neither does -ska :)
"language" in Swedish is språk.
oh, ok! thank you! I really did think that "ska" was language ;)
In other sentences "engels-ka" is pronounced as "en-gelska". What does it mean? Which one is correct, maybe both of them?
"Jag pratar engelska" (I speak English) or "Engelska kakor" (English cakes) could sound slightly different rhythm-wise in some Swedish dialects.
Confused about false correction.There is no typo in my sentence.It is exactly written like the correct version.
Welcome to the club bro.
Does "ng" in Swedish always sound like "ñ" in Spanish?
How do i say your dirty ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤?
Yurn dïruhm anü.
Pronunciation of "talar" is unclear
I hate this i lost my hart because of speak - speaks
I wrote "th man speaks english" and it marked me as wrong instead of a typo
