Why is djur animals and not animal?
Otherwise it would’ve been ett djur. You cannot plainly say ’Horses are animal’. It’s ungrammatical.
So djur means animals and ett djur means animal? Thanks a lot!
Djur means both animal and animals. But since the sentence ’Horses are animal’ is ungrammatical, you know it has to be plural since that’s the only grammatical option.
But is this swedish sentence is djur plural or singular?
Plural. It has to be since there is no article and being singular would make it ungrammatical as @Lundgren8 mentions.
because its many of them, basically more than one
for example: ett djur is one animal and djur its many animal
I had an issue with the pronunciation of "djur", the way it was said made it sound like "ure"
Well, the D is silent.
Why hästarna and not hästar? The first to me implies that not all horses are animal just these specific ones.
