Ir sounds like the name of a children's book to me for some reason. "The pigeon gets an answer."
What is the difference between får in the sentence "Han får ett svar" and får in the sentence "Får jag fråga dig en sak"? google tells me that "få" means recieve (and shows no results similar to may) and "får" means may, yet "får" looks like the present form of infinitive "att få".
What am I missing?
