Could anyone explain the difference betwen vars and vems? Are they interchangable?
I wanted to know this too.
I think (guess)
vems starts a question whereas
vars starts a subordinated clause which expressed a fact.
Both are in genetive case.
Yup! Have a lingot!
thank you :)
when do i use vars or vilket
vars is in the genitive so it's like 'whose' – meaning "belonging to someone or something" but vilket is like 'which', just a relative pronoun.
I've seen the word polisman used elsewhere. Is it common?
Not really common. Used more in earlier times when they were all men. But even then they used "polis". For example, a common taunt used by children used to be "Polis, polis, potatis-gris".
