Smörgåsar is the (indefinite) plural. Smörgåsen = the sandwich, smörgåsar = sandwiches.
- It's not a question of object vs. subject, it's a question of definite ('the') vs. indefinite.
- You need to consider number (sing vs. plural) as well, so there are four forms for each en noun and four forms for each ett noun.
- Singular definite is not always -en or -et, sometimes you add just -n or -t.
- The -n ending is used for the singular definite of en nouns, but it is also used for the definite plural of some ett nouns (eg.: barn/barn/barnet/barnen)
