So she is eating straight pepper? That's badass!

That's swedish girls for you! Did you believe Pippi Långstrump (Longstocking) was a work of fiction?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Rainbowrebellion

Pippi is still my role model :D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/eatpie1

bruh you look like lord farquad


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Erin982828

Pippi Longstocking was Swedish?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/iBrow.

Yeah, it's originally Swedish :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jetsetjames

Right after that Flickan dricker vatten


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Allyc4102

more like flickan dricker mjolk


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Anvnamnet

And after that "Flickan får ångest".

This is a normal day in Sweden!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Skoldpaddor

Does this specifically refer to ground pepper? Or is it the vegetable? I think pepper's actually a fruit, but what have you.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/cc08_

It's the spice.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/lorenagay

She eats pepper (the spice), but he doesn't drink oil...maybe he should..


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/chocoladenoot

What pepper? the spice or the vegetable?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/chocoladenoot

Why would you eat pepper as a spice xD but thanks!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/theredcebuano

Well, those are what the community calls “Duolingo sentences." Stuff like: I am a butterfly, the animal reads a book etc. etc.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ungewitig_Wiht

gasp you've uncovered my secret! flies away majestically as butterflies generally do


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Smeetheens

theredcebuano Wouldn't it be "Jag är myra"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/elif_melissa

And stuff like "i like pink elephants", "bears have bicycle"...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/InvincibleCat

Or, for example, i am eating oil


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/kael66

Hope it's the vegetable not the spice. Though that be little distrubing


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Arnauti

The vegetable is called paprika in Swedish.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/elif_melissa

This is why my cousin keeps calling it paprika :D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/danyen

Another pronunciation query - should the ending of 'peppar' have the 'er' sound of the recording or should it really be an 'ar' sound?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Vicki_33

Why is it not a pepper? Is just grinding pepper into her mouth?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Zmrzlina

Pepper (the spice) is uncountable in both English and Swedish. This is not referring to the vegetable (bell pepper), which is named "paprika" in Swedish.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Snikof

Poor girl...is that Swedish torture?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/InvincibleCat

No it's just regular


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KhadijaMus1

what pappar 《flickan äter paprika》


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MaxBeck.SWE

'paprika' is pepper as in "Bell Pepper."


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KhadijaMus1

Jahaa...tack så mycket


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Lionblaze_7

i had one which was "i like oil"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MaxBeck.SWE

"peppar" refers to the spice, and "paprika" the fruit, yes?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ColineDuc

Okay. Why is "the girl eats a pepper" not accepted?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Gealach24

"Peppar" refers to the spice, which is uncountable.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/popsup678

It reminds me of a hyperbole and a half story. Hopefully Flickan ater inte salt.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SophiaSkye2

This paired with the boy eating salt= power couple


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Nelli652764

For real she is eating pepper? How does she eat it?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Tsetsen5

girl eats pepper wow O.O


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mdziubak5

Why did I smile while I translated thst sentence? Probably because human-beings don't udually eat straight-up pepper. Smh.
