Is it related to spindles? And spinning?
Yes, etymologically it means ’the spinner’.
Makes sense if you think about it
So Spiderman in Swedish is The Spinner Man? Ooh.
yeah probably since spiders do technically ''spin''
I think that's possibly the most adorable word for a spider.
then how should i say "spiderman"
This doesn't mean The Spiderman?
Swedish often prefers things in the definite form.
Yeah, it does. But it sounds better >.
I SAID EN SPINDEL WAS A SPIDER AND IT SAID I WAS WRONG AND IT WAS ONE SPIDER
Don't be discouraged, J.! You and duolingo were both right: en spindel means "a or one spider". Hopefully, this bug (no pun intended) will have been sorted out by now. Meanwhile, have a Lingot from me in compensation...
The regular speed has a "d" sound, but the slow speech seems to be missing that.
Oh. It should be there in any case.
Thanks for clarifying
"A spooder" is wrong?
