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?
