I'm a bit confused with the use of 'svaren'. Does 'svaren' translate to both 'the answer' and 'the answers'? How does one distinguish between the plural and singular in this case or is it determined by the context?
Googling 'svarena' proved to not be a word so I assume we can't show plural with this extension.
It's a regular ett-word.
An answer = ett svar
The answer = svaret
The answers = svaren
Oh of course! I was translating based on -en usage.
Tack så mycket!
Ja, precis. It's the same in indefinite singular and plural, although the singular indefinite will most often be used together with the indefinite article.
So these "en and ett" are the indefinite articles? And there are no rules for them when to use
Yes, there are no rules for that. But animals are usually "en" for example: en elefant, en fågel, en hund. The word animal has "ett" (ett djur) and all animals with "djur" in the name have "ett" for example: ett rådjur.
I put that in although it sounded weird.. and it was accepted, which is also weird.
Vi är svaren is not correct, no. That would mean "we are the answers". But it's possible Duo thinks that's just a typo.
