I hope it is a double room for that money!
Ten million for the hotel in this case, I'd think, not for a room. :)
In english you don't have to, but I assume you have to pluralize the thousand, million, billion or whatever in cases like this? "två miljoner" as opposed to "två miljon"?
Yes, miljon/miljard (million/billion) has to be pluralized when referring to more than one. Tusen (thousand) doesnt need that though, so it's just "tre tusen kronor", for example.
Tack, jag förstår.
So, what numbers are not plural?
Så, vad nummer är plural inte? (Was that right?)
No, that's Vilka nummer är inte plural? or Vad för, but not just Vad.
That's just the way Swedish works.
Is it colloquial to say this? Should we include the word dollars as in English?
No, it's fine to not include it in either language.
Why not millions instead of million?
It's not grammatical in English.
Are we playing Monopoly?
Monopoly (or Monopol in Swedish) is much cheaper than that! The most expensive property is Norrmalmstorg, which will cost you 8 000 kr to purchase. :)
What is wrong with ‘They are paying’ as opposed to ‘They pay’?
Nothing - that's also accepted, as noted above.
Thanks, just wondering why ’They are paying’ was marked wrong.
Either you made an error or there was a bug. Given the lack of complexity in this sentence, I'm inclined to believe the latter.
What hotel is this? Is it coated in gold? (:
Ten million SEK for an hotel honestly doesn't sound that expensive. :)
I suppose! In euros or pounds sounds alot, but not in SEK :p
Sure, depends on the hotel. I think that would be very, very cheap for a lot of hotels as well. :)
Would på hotellet Work here?
No, that would mean they're at the hotel, paying ten million for something unspecified.
They pay for the hotel ten million - was marked incorrect. Why?
It's only idiomatic (if not grammatical) in English to put the object last here.
Could "They spend ten million for the hotel" be an acceptable alternative?
Sure, don't see why not. I've added it now. Do note that we have spendera in Swedish as well.
