Which you should not do. Bröd är inte god för ankor.

Bread is not good for ducks? #context clues

It's so empty of nutrients that it causes what's called "angel wing" where one of their "arm" bones gets disfigured to the point that they can't fly. And a bird of flight that can't fly is a dead bird.

Correct. It's very bad for them.

If you want to feed ducks it's better to offer them something like peas.

"Is eating" and "eats" are the same, right? Is there a difference between them?

So do all/most of the non-countable nouns end with "et" when you want to change them in definite form? Kaffet, vattnet, saltet..

No, it's irregular which words are en-words and which are ett-words.

oljan, soppan... The vocabulary so far makes it look like a trend - well spotted - but small samples create misleading impressions of trends. Still, it can be a memory hook for some of the ett words learned so far. :)

Is the TTS for "ankan" weird in this sentence? It seems like she pauses a bit too long between the syllables "an" and "kan", as if it were two words.
