Where I'm from it's normal to hear both 'I am vegetarian' and 'I am a vegetarian'.
Stupid question warning: What if I am a carrot (in a cartoon for example) and I want to say "I am vegetarian" (in the sense that I am not made of meat / can be eaten by a vegetarian) - is there a difference in how I can say that? :P
I heard something like: "Jaa vegetarian". Is it normal to hear people drop the g like this, or is it just the voice that the course uses?
The -g is dropped and är is just a long e or ä, so it’s more like: Ja e vegetarian.
Hearing natives speak Swedish, it is normal that they drop the g in Jag. You'll get used to it while learning Swedish more and more.
Is there a seperate word for vegans in swedish or does it count as vegetarian?
That's odd - I've never replied to a question about the word "vegan" here before, and now there are two separate ones within an hour of each other. :)
We use the same basic distinctions as in English:
- vegetarian = doesn't eat meat
- vegan = doesn't eat any animal products
Can we also say; jag ar en vegetarian? (Sorry about the ar, my keyboard has no Swedish letters)
