"Rent vatten" "Det rena vattnet" "Vatten är ren" "Vattnet är rent" "Vattnen är rena" So basically if it comes after the noun it keeps it's base form UNLESS it is definite or plural. Also when it is before the noun, rena is used in the definite form. This is what it looks like to me but correct me if I am wrong.
I am slightly confused by 'Rent vatten'. You mention that it keeps its base form unless it is definite or plural - but 'vatten' is neither definite or plural and yet 'rent' isn't in its base form of 'Ren'.
Unless I've interpreted this incorrectly and the 'definite' form of 'ren' is 'rent'? If this is true, does this apply to all adjectives?
Hej, I have a question. So, I learned recently that the sound ''I'' is represented by ''I'', ''G'' or ''J''. If, for example, someone tells me to write the word ''Varg''(which means wolf), but it's the first time I hear that word, how I am supposed to know if should use ''i'', ''g'' or ''j''. Why ''varg with g and and not j or i, if it's the same sound. Is there like a rule to determine what letter from the three represents the sound ''i''?
