"Pojken har tallrikarna."

Translation:The boy has the plates.

December 13, 2014



Is there a rule for the plural of tallrik? I can't seem to find one in the tips & notes for this section. It only mentions that en-words with the stress on the last syllable usually take "er". Is it usually "ar" for those which are not covered by the rules? Or do I have to memorize the plurals for all the words which are not covered by the rules in the tips & notes?

I would like to know this too.

Why can't he just have "plates" not "THE plates?"

That would be "tallrikar", not "tallrikarna"

Do we always miss the "r" sound in a word when it's followed by "n"?

The TTS isn't great here, I agree that it does sound like the R just disappears, but that is not what should happen. I couldn't find tallrikarna on Forvo, but you can hear the same sound in pojkarna as said by a native speaker here: http://sv.forvo.com/search-sv/pojkarna/

The R melts together with the N to form a sound that is often called retroflex. The same or similar goes for T, D, L and S.

We don't have a really good post about this yet as far as I know, but there's some information here: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/6235538

why it is has and not "have"

April 11, 2015


Because it's just one boy that has the plates, not several boys :)

So "plates" would be tallrikar and "the plates" would be tallrikarna ?
