Why can we not say "Du ar man" ?
You (plural) are men - Ni är män. You (singular) are a man - Du är en man.
So man in plural form is män right? I am following a course on Swedish and we weren't taught that (yet) so I just wanted to make sure.
So "du" is singular
"Ni" is plural
But what's the difference between "ni" and "er"
Ni=You plural or ni= you formal singular (not often used) er= yours
Ni = ye (it absorbed the verb suffix -n from Old Swedish, just as Icelandic þér absorbed -ð from the verb).
Er = you (object/oblique, blame English for replacing ye with you).
Er = your.
It´s better if you read the explanation in the Possessive Pronouns "Poss." it´s the circle with a brown box and a red arrow.
Why Ni and not Du?
How about dig? It says 'you' is also dig, is that just singular?
Dig is when "you" isnt referring to the subject (if i remember correctly)
Where we have to use ( Ni)
and where we have to use ( du)
I am smart
Does it mark it wrong if i do man instead of män
