Translation:The seasons are: spring, summer, fall, and winter.
This question made me wonder whether colons were used in the same way in both Swedish and English. Are they?
Why is it fall and not autumn, fall is American whereas autumn is British English. I would think that both options were correct
autumn is also an accepted answer. The course aims at having American English in the main translations, but the British versions should always be accepted too.
It's hard to understand the bot on normal speed whether it's saying 'årstiden är' or 'årstiderna är'
why is it that vår can mean both our, and Spring? they seem so unrelated
Just happenstance. It's common in English too to have words that sound and spell the same but have several meaning, such as the season Spring and the verb to spring.
However, English noun Spring and verb spring might be a bad example here, because they don't seem so unrelated :) The vernal season is Springtime because that is when the leaves spring forth from the branches, as water springs forth from a stream (which is also called a spring). Some homonyms in English that do seem unrelated to me would be noun bark vs. verb bark and noun loom vs verb loom.
So are there any Swedish tongue-twisters asking 'where are our wolves in the spring?'
No, a fall in that sense is ett fall in Swedish. (btw that also means a case in many contexts)
So is the "-rst" sound in Swedish pronounced as the "-sh" sound in English? I remember wondering the same thing with förstår. Is it always this "-sh" sound, or only sometimes?
Yes, always, but it doesn't necessarily have to be "-rst", it can just be "-rs", as in "mars" (March, pronounced "marsh").
I feel like when this robot voice pronounces word that end in "rna" it isn't pronounced clearly.
Interesting. When we have to adjust the clocks. I always think "spring forward", "fall back ".
That is the most common way to say och. (Similar to how "rock and roll" is usually "rock'n'roll" in English)
Does anyone else spend ages searching all over the screen for Autumn, every time it comes up, before remembering it's not there because it's in American?
This exercise has always accepted either Autumn or Fall, since they are synonyms. I don't think there's more they can do for your convenience.
We are not all Americans do please include ‘autumn’ as well as ‘fall’ in the word bank and answers.
Autumn has always been one of the accepted answers. When it's in the mode that displays tiles though, I think you have to just deal with whichever one it displays. You need not be American to figure it out.
We do accept "autumn". Do you remember exactly what you put? Otherwise, it's hard to tell what the error was.
Sorry no. Feel free to remove my post and I'll include more detail if it happens again.
