Sounds like it, but it isn't, at least not grammatically speaking. And the same applies to the English sentence: You say "Everything is expensive", not "Everything are expensive".
Also, indefinite words as subjects can have a neuter predicate
― Äpplen är gott vs. Äpplena är goda
If I am wrong, I'd like a warning
You're right. You can also say Det är gott med äpplen, a very typical Swedish phrase.
Here can you just say Alla är dyr här ? What is the difference between Allting and Alla ...
- alla would need the plural dyra
- alla means all [of them] or everybody. You could use allt instead here though, that can mean everything.
I'm sure there's more to say about alla/allting, but this is a start…
Allt, of course! Thank you igen... Sometimes all words swim in my head like a soup - I try to get a carrot, but get a potato instead :)
Kan du hjälpa mig? Do I understand these to be correct. - Allting är dyrt här - Allt är dyrt här (or should this be dyra) - Alla är dyra här Tack
I almost wrote "Everything is dirt here" and then found it was basically the opposite.
Why isn't "Everything's expensive" accepted?
What is the reason why some words can be written like that, and others can't?
There's some problem with the machinery that creates those contractions for us. I guess it isn't all that easy to write an algorithm that doesn't create contractions in places where they're incorrect. (the current machinery actually does that too in a few cases). I've added it manually now for this sentence.
Oh so it's a technical thing, I thought I had missed some obscure grammatical rule : )
Depends where you do your shopping, though prices are kind of fair considering you get back so much more back from society. Our taxes pays for free schooling, healthcare and dental care up to a certain age etc. After that it's quite affordable, so you won't get ruined even if you're a low income taker.
Indirect taxes: Electronics etc; 25% Food, hotels and such; 12% Books, magazines, transports and similar; 6%
Then you have direct taxes such as income tax, generally 20-25% and it vary depending on how much you earn. Generally the more you earn the more taxes you pay.
If you only visit here briefly, then it might be expensive, but if you live here you gain much more out of it in the long run :-)
Yeah, that works fine. One should note that most English speakers outside of Europe (i.e. the United States and the Commonwealth) probably wouldn't be too familiar with referring to something expensive, costly, pricey, etc. as "dear".
'här' is here, in this place; 'hit' is to here, to this place (like 'hither')
