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.
Would "år och månad" mean "years and months" then? Thanks.
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.
do they not speak swedish in the void?
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
She said "aura månader"
