There seems to be a variety of words meaning 'you' in danish, are they interchangeable?
Du is the singular version of "you" (Du er smuk = You are beautiful)
I (always capitalised) is the plural version of "you" (I er smukke = You (all) are beautiful)
De is the formal form of you (the D is always capitalised) (De er smuk = You (formal) are beautiful). This form really isn't used much today though
Thanks for you reply. So does 'De' mean a collective 'you', as well as 'they'?
"De" with the capital letter is the formal (polite) form of you. Like "Sie" in German. But "de" with the small letter means "they".
Smuk? It's a name for a type of snake in Serbian (Aesculapian snake- Zamenis longissimus) so I'm definitely gonna memorise this easily :D
"I" is plural you, while "jeg" is english I. "Meg" is me in english. For example; I er drenge - you are boys. And jeg er pige is i am a girl
I is used as plural, how does You(plural) are boy make sense? Shouldn't it be boys?
