I just wonder why there aren't tips popping up in Swedish like there is in German? It made a huge difference for me,i just flied right through German,even though Swedish seems much easier for me.
What would be most helpful is a little help with -en and -ett words and possibly explanation of how to pronounce Swedish vowels mainly,because when you get a task to write what is said it's often troublesome.
And then there's k turning into sh sound which i still don't understand how it works,g sometimes being pronounced like j,and y can be an u or i,i have no idea. -Kyrkan is read like shurkan,i don't understand why -Genom is read like jenom,so when do i say g and when do i say j ? I'm probably forgetting something but these are concers enough
I think those tips are only in the so called in-house courses – the first courses that were made by Duo staff. The courses that are built by volunteers like ours don't have the tools to create those tips, unfortunately.
It's the impersonal pronoun used in sentences like Man har alltid ett val ->'One always has a choice' or 'You always have a choice'.
What helped me was this:
They explain how it's used in different ways
Who know Swedish and wants to clarify some things for me ? :) On this site I found that there are multiple forms for a verb. https://sv.wiktionary.org/wiki/komma There is the infinitiv; understood. Then there's the present; understood. Then the Preterium; I didn't understand it. Is it like "I was coming home when he heard that noise" or is it like "I CAME home too early that day." ? There's the Supinum too. What's that ?? And also, can you explain me what's with "ska / skola / skulle", please ? I searched and found out that it means "shall" or "will" but I'm not sure about that. Thanks a lot ;).
infinitive: komma = to come * present: han kommer = he comes * preterite: han kom = he came * supine: han har kommit = he has come
Note that komma is an irregular verb... Here you can find the regular conjugations: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swedish_grammar . Then:
Jag ska(ll) komma = I will come * Jag skulle komma = I would come * These auxiliary verbs are actually conjugated forms of the verb skola (skola, skall/ska, skulle, skolat), but I bet you won't need skola or skolat for a very long time to come if ever...
Man in Norwegian is only ever the genderless, non-specific 'you'. Mann in Norwegian is the indefinite version of 'man', as in en mann. Mannen is the definite form, the man.
Man just means "man" and Mannen means "the man". The "-en" at the end means "the".
They came from the same root word in Proto-indoeuropean language *man-
Really? I thought it had something to do with the mixing of the languages and borrowing of words because of scandanavian settlers in england
The word man/mann was presented in both England and Scandinavian countries long before Scandinavian contact. It inherited, not borrowed.
Is there any way to tell them that you cant currently hear or speak so they stop giving you these questions?
I just read through all the comments and it seemed very confusing and now I'm questioning my existence. XD also man=man and men=män why.
Well, it's irregular in both languages in pretty much the same way but you couldn't very well spell the plural version with ä in English since you don't have that letter … :D
Im doing this coz it told me i forgot hon and vatten hon=woman vatten=water...
