Why is it "Et svar" or "svaret" but the plural is "svarene"? I would have expected "svarete" or something like that... is there a rule I am missing?
Nope. To form the plural you typically add -er or -e to the word (or nothing, like in the case of svar). Then -ne or -ene to form the definite.
singular: et svar / svaret
plural: svar / svarene
Why isn't "Do you write the answers?" an appropriate translation of this?
Can anyone help me understand where the article (the) is in the sentence?
Svar-ene plural definite form, means the answer
Its the "ne" at the end of svarene.
Svar = answer
Svare = answers
Svarene = the answers
Does not skriver as the first word mean both "are you writing" and "do you write".
Also "do you write answers" is wrong? How come?
Why not 'responses'?
