Could this also be "Under en månads period"?

December 9, 2014


Yes, I personally would say so, or maybe even as one word: månadsperiod.

I don't remember ever learning what 'during' and 'period' were in Swedish... Did they teach that in the Time lessons?

Same here, i've encountered it in other lessons also. I made all the time lessons in a streek and then strengthened them - there were new words that are not (color)marked aswell. It is not realy a prolem for me, and i am telling people that i send to duolingo that it is that way, however you might want to either "fix" that or make it clear.

Why is "om" not acceptable for "of" here?

om in the sense of time, means "in", as in "in an hour".

I don't understand when to use and not use "av"

Don't use it for possession - Swedish almost never does. But for parts of a whole, and as a preposition, it works perfectly well for the most part.

"Under en del av en månad" should be correct as well. Nobody says "en period av en månad".

Doesn't sound right to me, I would interpret that as "during a part of a month". Also if you do a google search using the term "under en del av en månad" you get >20 000 search results whereas "under en del av en månad" gives you 7 search results. If you wan't to replicate this, remember to include to quotation marks to search for an exact match.

Why "Under ett månadsperiod" is wrong?

Because "period" is an n-gender word
