So to sum it up
Du- you singular subjective pronoun Eg- Du älskar mij
Ni- you plural subjective pronoun Eg- Ni älskar oss
Dig- you singular objective pronoun Eg- Jag älskar dig
Er- you plural objective pronoun Eg- Vi älskar er
Did i get that right?
what is the different between "er" and "dig" , cuse we saied "jag alskar dig" and here "barnen alsar er"
Well it's a little late now but I think dig is singular and er is plural. So you would say er to a group but dig to just one person
I feel like I have to study English grammar all over again just to remember pronouns, verbs, subjective, objective, etc means in the first place
Ett barn= a child Barnet= the child Barn =children Barnen=The children Notice that barn is an ett word If barn came alone without the ett its assumed as children
I would also like to know.
Applen = apples Applena = the apples
But barnen does not mean 'children', it means 'the children'? Could someone help?
Yes beacuse ett barn-child, barn-children ,barnet-the child,barnen-the children
"Barnet" = the child "Barnen" = the children
This is getting interesting
Er - plural form of "you" when "you" is not the subject
Du - "you", subject
Ni - "you" (plural), subject
The issue is English alone. The children (3rd person plural) doesn't agree with loves (3rd person singular). It's either The children love, as in this sentence, or the child loves (correct English, but a wrong translation for this exercise).
So how many words in swedish means "you?" There's Dig, er, du, ni and if there's more. I know "du" and "ni" are for singular and plural respectively but what about dig and er?
So I put "The child loves you all" and it was marked incorrect. Can someone help me figure out where I went wrong? I thought er was you.Plural
There's two "you"s in swedish that we don't have in english, a singular Du and plural Ni, so if you want to denote plural you in english sometimes people say "You all, you guys, you both, yous, etc" depending on where you're from and what you've grown up around. Some people just leave it up to context to figure it out, though. So it is technically correct.
In a few langauges the formal form is the same as the plural form (sie and Sie in german). Is Er also a formal form, for example a way to talk to a teacher?
