wait whats the difference of en and ett again?
They both mean one/a/an, which one to choose depends on the noun, since all swedish nouns are either 'ett'-words, or 'en'-words: ett bord - bordet, en stol - stolen
any difference between århundrade and sekel?
How would you say "the centuries"? Århundradena? Or Århundraderna?
Kan vi också sager "talet"?
Not in this context. "Tal(et)" is used to mean "century" when you are saying "the 20th century -- 1900-talet" or "the 21st century -- 2000-talet." It can also be used in "the 90s -- 1990-talet."
1900-talet is the shortened way of writing "Nittonhundratalet"
Hi Friswing! I have a question. If you reply to someone else's reply, does the original person also get notified? Just wondering :)
Yes, everyone who follows this discussion, that is has written something on this page. And even when I intend to answer the first comment, my answer will appear further down, like here, below yours. :)
That makes a lot of sense. Tusen tack!
Yes, except nittonhundratalet is actually the 20th century...
Swedish and English differ slightly. Nittonhundratalet = 1900-talet = Det tjugonde (20e) århundradet = the 20th century (the 1900s)
Thank you for catching my mistake!
