  5. "Jag har hundar."

"Jag har hundar."

Translation:I have dogs.

November 28, 2014



what if i want to say the dogs? is it hundaren?!


It is hundarna. -Ar for plural and -na for definitive in plural (in words whose plural marker is -or, -ar or -er).


yes i saw it in next lesson i was just rushing to know, tack sa mycket :)


Hi, I was just wondering why the plural form of "en hund" - "a dog" is "hundar". Is there some rule? I've learnt that suffix for plural -ar is present only in those en-words ending -e or -ing. For example en pojke ->pojkar, en utlänning -> utlänningar. Thank you :)


”En”-words that end on consonants can also take either -ar or -er, but if they end on -e, they always take -ar.


It probably would have been better to ask sooner, but is jag really just pronounced "yo" because it definitely sounds that way


yes, quite similar to pronounciation of swedish "yes"-Ja


Hmm... The reason why it's not hunder is because "u" on hund is a deep sound? If that's the case it's similar to turkish, as words that have "a" "o" "u" on the last syllable get suffixes with "a" while those with "e" "i" "ö" get "e" suffixes
