How does this sentence indicate one reindeer is the subject vs plural reindeer?
Tack sa mycket. Your answer makes it so obvious, and yet I was stuck on the English, end reindeer being both singular and plural.
Because Reindeer and deer are distinct from each other. It's like translating "Trout" to simply "Fish"
There's a comment in this thread but no explanation as to why "renen" sounds like "ree-uh-nen" (three distinct syllables) rather than what one would expect phonetically: "ren-en". Is this some property of the "n" in the middle? Or is it a diphthong of the first "e"?
I was under the impression 'Dricker' was both a plural and singular word; That is, both 'is drinking' and 'are drinking.' I was incorrect when I answered with 'are drinking'.... what changes the is vs. are? (Sorry if this is supposed to be obvious)
It sounds like she's pronouncing renen as "ri-en-en". Is this the proper way to pronounce it, or is there some issue with the TTS?
In Swedish, how do you distinguish between the verb tenses? For example "dricker". How do you know if a person is saying "drinks", or "is drinking"? Or "ater"--> "eats" or "is eating".
How do i know it is supposed to be
"The reindeer drinks milk" Instead of "The reindeer drink milk"
Am i missing a word that makes it so? Thanks in advance!!!
If it's on the links that might be my issue. I'll have to log into a desktop to view it. For some reason it errors out for me. :/
Oh so it's singular and that's why it's drinks and not drink? Sorry for the question I'm just trying to make sure I understand before I progress further
Yup, renen is singular definite and renarna plural definite.
(for some reason people who don't see comments when they're on mobile sometimes see them when they return on mobile, but the forums work in mysterious ways).
Ahhh Thank you!!!! I got plural lesson coming up so I'm sure I'll get a better grasp of this. Cheers
Welp... Never heard of a reindeer drinking milk other than now... But im wierd anyways so :P
Why is 'the reindeer drinks' wrong and should be 'the reindeer is drinking'? How can I tell the difference
