every time i enter ater(without dotted) it shows typo error. whats the difference between these two? what is typo error?
Ater and äter have different pronunciations because of the sound of "ä." A typo error doesn't mean you lose any strength bars or anything, as if one was using an English keyboard, typing "ater" to someone would be understood. However, in daily speech and whatnot, "äter" is the correct spelling.
Does äter mean "is eating" or "eats"? How do you understand the difference?
It can mean either. Obviously if you were actually speaking to someone you would be able to tell the difference by the context of the conversation
My translation of The man eats the apple wasn't accepted, saying it should be The man eats ONE APPLE.. Is that accurate? Does Ett mean one? And is my translation really wrong?
Yes, 'The man eats the apple' is Mannen äter äpplet in Swedish, but Mannen äter ett äpple can mean either 'The man eats an apple' or 'The man eats one apple'. In speech, we can hear the difference because en has a little more stress when it means 1, but in the written language you have to guess from context.
-en is a suffix for the definite article. In romanian language we have -ul, -a,(singular) -i, -le (plural) . I thought we are alone ^^
