The English sentence has an "an" overload..
Yes. It has 5.
almost a tongue twister
Fem myror är fler än fyra elefanter.
i was referring to the english translation, but i'm really liking this sentence :)
It was a famous Swedish children program.
oh, that's so great! i really like that they used some jazz music for the names section.
and the animations somewhat remind me of Die Sendung mit der Maus https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HA1SEGXZW4M
Showing the full range of size of Duolingo animals …
I put the sentence in correctly, but it was coundet as a mistake! This is the second time this happened today!
Way to go, Duolingo! Another wack combination!
English has the cognate 'mire', but this is mostly obsolete. The word ant is from Proto-Germanic uzmaitijō, Old English ǣmette, literally an 'out-cutter'.
There is "K" in this version of TTS (7-02-2015) "och en" (o-k-en).
Is it how native speakers say this words combination?
Yes, it's pronounced "ock" or sometimes as "å".
I would say that it's more likely that a native speaker would pronounce this sentence without the /k/ in casual speech.
So when does An become A.. e.g "a ant"
You use "a" before consonant sounds, and "an" before vowel sounds.
How do you say 'owl' and 'owlet' in Swedish? We should have had that animal in the beginning considering duolingo's maskot.
I thought I was learning Swedish, not English tongue twisters
So how's the a+o combined together pronounced?:)
Suomi on maailman onnellisin maa
An ant and an elefant...
