Is it related to spindles? And spinning?
Yes, etymologically it means ’the spinner’.
Makes sense if you think about it
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?
