Why not "om" instead of "när". I understand "om" is closer to "if" but in English it is not going to make a difference in sentence sense.
Same question here. It's more about the reason WHY the dogs run, rather than the time or period WHEN they run.
+1 to this, I have the same question
"när" means "when"
If I recall correctly, "om" means "if" and "as" etc.
kan vi inte säger "då de ser mat"?
If I recall correctly, "då" means "then" and its a way of being respectful.
I don't think you need to put this in this kind of sentence.
Why isn't "dem" accepted?
Because "dem" means "them" while "de" means "they". They is the word used in the sentence, not them, so it is "de". I think this is why, someone correct me if I'm wrong, please.
Yes, you're exactly right. De is the subject pronoun ("they"), while dem is the object pronoun ("them").
Thank you very much! I gave you a lingot.
Jag älskar svenska så mycket!
Now the problem for me is, how to remember the meanings of those two words, when both of them are so similiar. I'm half german and half portuguese by the way.
Tack tack :)
The swedish grammar structure is like sometimes its the same as in German and sometimes its the same as in english.
