"Nu är det för sent!"

Translation:Now it is too late!

November 30, 2014



It's "är det" instead of "det är" because it's preceded by "Nu." Am I correct?

Right. The verb needs to be in second place in the sentence.

För is used in multiple unrelated senses? As in 'too' and 'for'?

Shouldn't "It is now too late" be accepted?

The word order there doesn't sound very natural. The other order I'd agree with is: "It is too late now"

I don't think it is too unnatural, like ''Is it now too late to book a room?'' sounds fairly natural to me.

Ashley, I find "It is now too late" equally acceptable, though it is perhaps not the most common usage these days; it might sound a little more British, in fact. I can imagine myself (and have probably said) "It is now too late to catch the 12:03 train" and so on. [I'm a 60-something American writer, and have lived abroad--Britain (10), Asia (5) and Sweden (2) for the past seventeen years.]

I too keep hearing the 'det' as 'du' - it catches me out every time!

Again, I guess this is the adjective instead of the adverb form in this sentence?

if i say nu det ar for sent would that be referring to an object? now IT is too late? instead of just referring to like the time is too late

That breaks the V2 rule.

How will you ask the question "Now, is it too late?"

The voice here sounds like Nu är DU för sent

I first thought I didn't understand it wright, but "nu" is also a Dutch word and it also means now
