Okay so question, is there a danish word for soda? Just wondering


What do you mean by soda? It could mean different things to different people.


Like, just as an object. Like, say if you went to a restaurant and you wanted a soda with your meal like that kind of soda. Does that make sense?


I know you meant a drink.. but for example, we don't use 'soda' to refer to any drinks here - it usually refers to 'baking soda' here. That's why I asked you, what you mean by 'soda'. It's still not clear.. what type of drink is soda in your definition?


Ah ❤❤❤❤, sorry! I meant to it as like... a carbonated beverage. Like a coke or a Dr. Pepper, you know?


What about sodavand? Ive seen it in Danish menus


I think that's soda water.


Why spiser and drikker is used? I thought spise and drikke. What grammar am I missing? Thanks in advance.


spiser is the present tense form of spise. Does that explain it for you?


I got one letter wrong, usually that is deemed a typo, in fact I've made actual mistakes that have been passed by as typos, but now one typo on one letter and this is is failed..


I think it depends on the mistake, which somehow you left out.


The farther along you get you'll find that they have more wrongs for a single letter than did they do now
