Fun fact, if your are using speech-to-text, it might change "eftermiddag" to EM. Found that out the hard way.
So... By context, does the mean 3PM could mean 3EM? Similar question, how do you say time in the afternoon anyway? (I haven't taken that lesson yet) Does Swedish use the 24 hour clock or the 12 hour AM/PM clock?
Sometimes I try and go with what's there and see it as a learning exercise. So in my daily life I would definitely say 'it's the afternoon', but I can still be fine with the words 'it is afternoon'. It could be a description in a wildlife documentary, the start of a story, part of a trans-global telephone conversation, anything!
Det and Den both are an article. Right? Who to know which one to use?
