de or dem? is this just a regional thing, because i thought it should be de?
It's the object form, so it should be dem. A lot of Swedes struggle with this though. If you know English it's not hard, just use de for they and dem for them.
More like a group of people. Swedish doesn't use them for a single person the way English sometimes does.
Must these object pronouns always be placed at the end of a sentence? I can't think of an example in English that doesn't place "me", "he" , "she", "they" etc. at the end.
Generally the Germanic languages rely a lot on word order more so that what is the case in inflectional languages like many Slavic ones or Latin, where the word order isn't necessarily as important.
Swedish can flip the order of subject and object in a straightforward sentence, generally moving things to the front for emphasis. This we can say both "ni älskar dem" and "dem älskar ni" translate to "you love them", but the latter is more emphasising that you love them as opposed to something else.
Thanks for that. It is not very intuitive at all for me. I'll try to learn it.
I don't know. Ask duolingo support, they know better why the site works as it does.
I always mess up Ni and Vi (You and We), as in French it is kind of the opposite: Vous and Nous (You and We).
"Vi" is almost pronounced like "We". Remembering that the plural "You" is "Ni" is more difficult because I can't see or hear anything familiar.
In a very large part of the world the normal way to say "you" to a group is just "you"; "you all" is not that common. So there are two ways.
Unfortunately, the word bank is generated automatically, so we cannot do anything about it as course contributors. :(
In det, the final t is frequently dropped.
You're also thinking of de and dem - since they're both normally pronounced dom.
