oh boy! so many polyglots on this discussion but I'm going to ask this anyway. How do I know when to use före instead of innan?
how about "june comes before may?" as if I'm repeating something someone else said in disbelief?
can this sentenece translate to that?
You could have done the same in Swedish, just with intonation, saying Juni kommer före maj?? (add så before to make it even more clear) and your sentence would translate that sentence.
All the names of the days and months have capitals in English. We aren't "pedantic" about it, but if you were writing a formal essay or something and you wrote "James Davidson was killed on friday, may 10", you would lose marks for not using a capital on Friday and May. In German, ALL NOUNS are capitalised - chair, table, room, greed, anything that is technically a "thing" has a capital. English doesn't go this far but it capitalises more things than Swedish and Spanish.
