Thanks! This will be very useful on my trip!
I, too, make it a duty to always compliment them for their big sausage before I get some.
I wonder if this really something that you could say in polite Swedish company? It would depend on your intonation and the context, but in English I don't think I would say this for fear of misinterpretation.
Honestly, this is creepy, when testing out of level 2 I just got these directly one after the other:
What a big sausage you have!
The girl eats the carrot.
The cream is white.
Duo needs a NSFW marker!
I can understand the sausage sentence, but the cream one uses grädde, which is only ever cooking cream, and the carrot one seems rather childish to interpret as NSFW.
What happened to V2 here? Tack.
We don't mention it all the time, but V2 does not apply in exclamations either. There's a description of these under #5 in this topic: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/8970470
Thanks. I have German and Dutch pushing me to invert here, so it's tricky to remember that exclamations form an exception to V2 in Swedish.
Is it true ren korv = clean sausage / renkorv = reindeer sausage?
Yes, that's correct.

What's the difference between the Swedish words for hot dog and sausage?
A hot dog is en varmkorv. There are lots of different types of korv with names that are compound nouns.
Why vilken not vad ?
Swedish doesn't have the "what a" construction that English does.
Can't I say "vad en stor korv har du?"
Nope, Swedish can't use the "what a..." construction.
Why is this "vilken" if "korv" is an ett-word?
"Korv" är en-ord.
korv , korven , korvar , korvarna
Whi is it that the pinkish dialog box cannot be moved thereby hindering me from ckeckng iwhat I wrote. It's frustrating
Unfortunately, the only advice I can offer is to post in the troubleshooting forums (https://forum.duolingo.com/topic/647), since course contributors can do absolutely nothing about it.
