Why do you have to use "De" in the beginning?
For some reason in Swedish, when you use an adjective before a definite noun you also need to use a definite article before the adjective. 'De' here doesn't mean 'they' it's functioning as the definite article 'the'
Its called 'double determinism'. Also specifically, its 'De' as the plural definite
there is a bit explanation at the skill "adjectives 1". especially the section "definite forms": https://www.duolingo.com/skill/sv/Adjectives-1 i hope that helps
First time that I see that full means drunk (rather than well... full)....
Same here, I was confused and wrote druckit
I hope I never have to use this phrase...
de fulla fula kvinnorna
What about den fulla kvinnorna?
No, for plurals with an adjective you use de.
I wonder is it possible to distinct fula och fulla by ear?
They are pronounced differently: 'fula' has long u and short l while 'fulla' has short u and long l.
you can listen for the difference here: https://sv.forvo.com/search-sv/ful vs https://sv.forvo.com/search-sv/full :-)
Except for båda and alla? No double determinism?
The last time this was 'De kvinnorna fulla'
