Yes, but using "karl" is a bit more rough if you will. It would actually be used as a bit of a more masculine form of "man". You would say something like "Han är en riktig karl" and it would be a bit like "he is a real man's man". Some might even say it's a little bit primitive, it is not something you would expect to hear from everyday people, especially the younger generation.
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
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...
