Why does it correct my mistake to mackor and not to smörgåsar for "sandwich"?
en macka and plural mackor is a colloquial word for 'sandwich'. The machine tries to match your answer to the closest accepted answer and sometimes it makes pretty odd choices … unfortunately we have no control over that.
Smörgåsar should work perfectly fine for sandwiches too
That's the suggested answer, as you can see on top of this page.
What is the difference between 'de' and 'det'?
De = they
Det = it
Thank you :)
And the difference to 'dem' please?
dem = them
is there a difference between äter and spiser?
Yes, spiser is a Danish word and äter is a Swedish word :-)
oohps, thank you, didn't know that
Doesn't "mackorna" also mean "the sandwiches"?
Yes, but it’s in the indefinite form here, so mackor.
why can ´De äter smörgåsen´ not work
"Smörgåsen" is definite singular. The correct answer, "smörgåsar", is indefinite plural.
I am hearing deya instead of dome for de, (they) in this sentence on my audio. Thank you
Ive noticed that DE is mainly pronounced DOM but every so often it is pronounced DEE. I havnt spotted a pattern as to why. Help!

There is no pattern other than that "dom" is the casual pronunciation you will hear the vast majority of the time.
Thank you sotnosen93
Why does sandwich end in "ar" at plural? Is it one of those words with its own ending, not following any plural rules?
Not sure what you mean. -ar is one of the most common plural endings.
Jag ville skriva smörgäss, hahaha
