So is Swedish like French in that you omit the article when talking about occupation like this?
Yes, for occupations and similar constructions you have no article.
- Hon är advokat.
- Han är rasist.
A student is one who studies on purpose, for a purpose, whereas a pupil is merely one who attends school. (Acc. to Webster's 1828)
Yes. As discussed above, the article is also omitted for occupations: Hon är advokat.
Yeah, I have noticed it after I posted the question. Men tack så mycket för svaret! :)
Varsågod. If there are any adjectives involved, however, the article is used: Hon är en bra läkare. = She is a good doctor. (I took this directly from Tips and Notes in the Occupations skill.)
Yeah, now it's quite clear to me. Your response has been very helpful.. Thanks again!
