what is the difference here between "genom" and "igenom" in answers?

November 21, 2014


I am not entirely certain of the differences between the two, but I read elsewhere that "genom" primarily plays the role as a preposition. "Igenom" can be used as a preposition as well, however it can also play the role of an adverb.

English examples of "through" used as a preposition and then as an adverb:

"I see through you." [Preposition]

"Your document submission went through." (i.e. Your document was successfully processed, etc.) [Adverb]

As I mentioned above, I am not completely versed in the appropriate uses between the two words, but this might be of some use to you and others -- at least until a native/fluent speaker can correct and/or enhance my response.

"Barnen simmar genom restaurangen." :D :D

That must be a very damp restaurant!

just for my curiosity, how do you say "genome" in Swedish?

May 11, 2017


It's also "genom", but pronounced /jɛ'noːm/, i.e. a long and stressed O.

May 11, 2017


tack så mycket for the translation and its pronunciation.

May 11, 2017


I have quite some difficulties with the Swedish pronounciation. In this sentence it the "g" of "genom" pronounced like an "i" (or a German "j")?

If they stand before certain vowels (e,i,y,ö i think, correct me if i'm wrong), g,k,sk & maybe more consonants are pronounced softly. kött -> "chött", genom -> "jenom", but går, kvinna etc. are normal.

the swedish 'G' will usually have its sound as either a Y or a G depending on the vowel that follows it, in this case E

Barnet springer på restaurangen not correct? There is a song which has the text Herren gar på ängen, which translates as The Lord warks through the meadow

January 4, 2016


Translated songs and other forms of art aren't always a very good source of learning. "På ängen" sounds better in Swedish, but that doesn't mean "på" means "through".

why can i not use barnet? is Barnet singular and barnen plural? why would it be barnen because i thought barn was an ett word?

March 1, 2016


Yes, barnet is singular. Barnen is an irregular plural.
