Can I write Dom instead of De? Because i hear Dom and I saw somewhere that you can write that too.

Yes. "Dom" should be accepted anywhere where "de" or "dem" is. If it isn't, report it.

Why is it spelled "de" but pronounced "dem/dum/dom"?

November 21, 2016


The pronunciation changed over time (always "dom"), but written language is more conservative than spoken.

i read somewhere on here that its always 'Det är' with people but i guess thats wrong then?

This sentence is pointing to a specific group of people, and if you're specifically referring to something or someone, det/den/de has to agree with that.

Should de be pronounced 'de' or 'dom'?

Fom, you can type dom as well. It should be accepted

I literally typed "de är män" and it was marked incorrect!

Correction? "De är män"!!!!! Seriously? I reported it, hope it gets fixed soon (though I lost XP already!).

I see your error report in the admin interface and it's marked as correct as well. It's really annoying - Duolingo is supposed to not care about punctuation and capitalisation, and then it still does now and then. Only rarely, but I have no idea why and I can't fix it.
