Can somebody help me with Swedish articles? I get that a definite article (the) is translated by adding an 'uhn' sound on the end of the noun but I don't understand when you add 'an', when you add 'en' or why it is completely different for the Swedish for bird. Also, for the indefinite article, when should you use ett and when should you use en, is it like gender in many other languages or is it some other reason I'm unaware of? Also, if it is gender, is there a general rule you can follow to work out what gender a word is, like in Spanish where if a word ends in a, it's feminine and o or e means it's masculine?
