What's the difference between "fin" and "vacker"? Is "fin" for objects (like clothes) and "vacker" for living things (like cats)?
AFAIK (as a norwegian), "vacker" is stronger than "fin", like beautiful vs. nice/pretty.
I did the same thing so as to test whether it was a synonym in Swedish and expecting it to be so but it was rejected (22nd Nov 2016). So how would one say "creature(s)"?
Is the adjective modifying the pronunciation of 'djur' here so there is no d or is there an error in the audio?
The D in djur is always silent.
This applies to the first letter of words that begin in dj-, lj- and gj-.
This is Sebastian Michaelis' sentence right here... :D
Only Kuroshitsuji fans would understand.
I understand why this is "Cats are beautiful animals" ... But I wrote, "cats are a beautiful animal" without thinking why this wouldn't be in a language course. What I wrote is a much more abstract phrase, but one that would still be used in English with the same meaning.
Only if there was a species specified, though - "They are a beautiful animal" would indicate "they" is in a singular form. But since "cats" or "wolves" cannot be a singular form the rest of the sentence, whether plural or singular, is understood as plural.
But they don't care what we think about them. :-) Hmmm how would you say that in Swedish?
