"The girl reads a letter."

Translation:Flickan läser ett brev.

What the difference between brev and bokstav? The first time I did this one it told me I was wrong for using brev.

Apparently bokstav is a letter in the alphabet, whilst brev is a letter you send. Googled it but ran into same issue.

Difference between en and ett?

January 9, 2015


Every Swedish noun is either an en-word or an ett-word. You will have to learn which is which word by word. It's comparable to how French has le and la words, for example.

it's comparable but not a masculine/feminine situation?

November 19, 2015


Exactly. We used to have 3 genders historically: masculine, feminine and neuter. (long ago) But then the masculine and feminine melted together and formed what is now the common gender (the en words).

All Swedish words are divided into two groups: en-words (or utrum) and ett-words (or neutrum). Unfortunately, you cannot know to which group a certain word belongs but there are some tips to have a greater chance of guessing right.

Most words are en-words Most words designating a person are en-words ¹ Have a look at the ending, many endings take the same article (e.g. –a² , –ing and –het are always en-words) ¹ One common exception is ett barn a child ² The only exceptions are ett öga, ett öra and ett hjärta.

'the girl' vs 'girl'

I'm having a really hard time saying "läser". I'm trying to say the english word "laser" (lahyz-er)but with an s sound instead of a z sound. Is that more or less correct? I feel like its wrong...

Im told (by my swedish boyfriend) that its more like LEY-SEHR
