Shouldn't "Year and months" be accepted here? Grammatically it makes sense, and I've long given up on applying logic to Duolingo sentences...
Lostdrewid is right: without the article 'ett' before it 'år' is plural.
a year:ett år; the year:året; years:år; the years: åren
a year: ett år
the year: året
the years: åren
am i the only one who thinks the audio sounds weird? :/
The words start getting spoken through each other here
In the full speed, she definitely doesn't say "och"
I hear it, but since "och" is usually just /o/ it can be a bit hard to hear it clearly in a phrase.
Is there no difference between the singular and plural of year, 'ar'?
It's the same in indefinite singular and indefinite plural: ett år, två år, flera år. It's året in definite singular, åren in definite plural.
so in this case should year and months be technically correct?
A year should (?) have ett before, but if there is no article then it is years (pl). Am I correct and is it always a rule ?
If you were saying " a year and months", but they're saying "year and months". It could go either way here, but this isn't specifically saying "one/a year"
there are a few exceptions, but singular nouns typically don't stand alone in Swedish. "Year and months" would still be "ett år och månader", I'm fairly certain.
If i want to say this year i år ? This month i månad.
I think it would be ett År for year/a year
År - years
Året - the year
Åren- the years
