  5. "Which book is yours?"

"Which book is yours?"

Translation:Vilken bok är din?

December 3, 2014



What is the difference between "din" and "er"? I dont really get it...


din if it belongs to one person, er if it belongs to several people.


That's awesome, except Duo doesn't ever say in English if "your" is for one person or more than one person, so I have to guess if it's "er" or "din."


Would anyone be able to explain the difference between ¨Vilken¨ and ¨Vilket¨?


"Vilken for en words, 'Vilket" for ett words.


How do I know whether to use ditt or din?

"Which book is yours?" Vilken bok är din? "Which dog is yours?" Vilken hund är ditt?


"Din" is for en-words and "ditt" is for ett-words. "Vilken bok är din?" "Vilken hund är din?" "Vilket barn är ditt?" (What child is yours?) "Vilka barn är dina?" (Which children are yours?)


I am wonder if verb place is not the second position? Vem är ...


Vilken bok is the subject here and takes up the first place, then the verb comes after that in second place. It works the same as in Den här boken är din ('This book is yours') or Den stora röda boken är din ('The big red book is yours'), the subject is expanded with additional words but it's still just one unit.


is din used as your and yours ?


"dins" would be completely wrong here right?


Vilken for en words and vilket for ett words... It seems like the Swedish is literally saying "the which", to be very specific about which item is being identified.


"Which book is yours?" In a sense that it belongs to you, or that you have written it (and maybe gave me a copy but I have to give it back)?
