This sentence is really funny. "It is fully empty." I love humans and the way they talk.
I agree! There are more expressions like that, e.g.: lite mycket = a bit much, and mycket lite = very little, I'm sure there are more like them.
True it's just affirming an absolute negative. :-) also, No person has been in an empty place. Ever. Food for thought...
Marking the typo Buss wrong is just being over harsh as you let othye typos through without a problem.
Typos are handled by Duo, not by course creators, so complaints about typo handling should be in the general forums. The general idea of Duo's typo handling is that you can have one letter wrong unless that turns the word into another word. It gets a bit unfair if you compare how it works in English vs other languages, because they obviously use a much larger database for English.
Is helt an adverb then? Since if if was an adjective it wouldn't end in -t right? If the sentence was The busses are completely empty, which would it be?
Busserna är helt toma eller Busserna är hela toma
Yes, it's an adverb since it modifies an adjective, not a noun.
The other one would be Bussarna är helt tomma.
So is bus neuter or utrum (en bus or ett bus)? Looking it up, I find "bus, buset, bus, busen" (i.e. regular neuter), but in this sentence we have "bussen" as singular definite utrum (as is unambiguously indicated by the form of the adjective)... So are there different possible forms?
It's en buss (bussen, bussar, bussarna).
bus, buset etc is a word that can translate either as 'mischief' (denoting an activity typical of children) or maybe 'riff-raff' or 'scum' (collective noun denoting very rowdy people).
