Couldnt it be many?
Thats what I entered but it came back as incorrect.
So, "many" is a different Swedish word altogether?
Yes, many = många
I agree. i got it wrong for saying many
flera only ever means "several", never "many". Some dialects of English do use "several" synonymously with "many", but this is not standard usage and as such not considered in the course.
What is the difference between several and many? Is there a dedinite quantity that separates the two, such as two is a couple or a pair, so sever is more than 2 but less than x, and many is between y and z?
The usual definition of "several" is "more than a few, but less than many". Exactly what that means in practice can differ, though, so there are no set numbers separating them.
Couldn't "en häst" also be "a horse"?
That is also an accepted answer.
Huh. I got it wrong, but looking back, I probably just typed "the horse" instead.
Currently not accepted.
DanKortsch: I just typed "a horse" and it was accepted. Seems ok now. :O)
flera = several
Could 'flera' also be 'multiple'
Could this not be 'some' horses?
That would rather be några.
can ´flera´be ´more´?
"Flera" means several. More would be "fler" or "mer". But people are sometimes a bit lazy and use them interchangeably
can "flera" be "a lot of" instead of "several"?
No, a lot of is massor av (there are other versions to massor med, massvis med, massvis av).
tack så mycket !
Can't it be "sevral horses" and "many horses"?
No, only several
Does "flera" not mean "some"?
No. See Lundgren8's answer above.
"Flera" is pronounced flera or flira?
flera, with a Swedish long e.
Several or few, isn't it?
"few" is normally fewer than "several".
Many is a synomyn of several. Why is it incorrect?
"many" is typically more than "several", and the course maintains this difference.
Why not many instead of several
why is "more horses" not accepted, i speak danish and it's quite similar so i'm pretty sure that "flera" also means "more"
It's fler in Swedish; flera is too colloquial and would give the wrong idea.
Many = several?
No, many = många, and several = flera.
Is there a way to know when to use ar or er?
