Things smakar 'adverb' in Swedish, but taste 'adjective' in English. It's the same with smells.
god is an adjective and gott is an adverb.
good is an adjective and well is an adverb.
In Swedish, we say smakar/luktar gott (not god)
but in English, you say tastes/smells good (not well)
That's clear, thanks! However, just wondering, does the same goes for "är"? "Maten är gott." I am asking because I seem to remember that "Maten är god" was marked correct somewhere (way back) in the beginning of the course.
It's with the verbs for taste and smell that we use adverbs – "how does it smell". With är, we just use adjectives, so it's Maten är god, maten smakar gott.
it is exactly the same in Spanish. I am discovering a lot of similarities between Spanish and Swedish with this course.
Thanks, I found your explanation on another question and praised it there :)
i learned these food words in the youtube channel "REGULAR ORDINARY SWEDISH MEAL TIME"!!
Korv in Sweden is used mostly to describe a hotdog, not a sausage. They don't seem to distinguish between the two.
For me "hotdog" is a subcategory of "sausage". Both are in casings and generally need cooking (although Italians sometimes eat "salsiccia" raw). Sounds to me like you may be confusing sausage and salami (almost always eaten as is because cured).
Vad händerande med duolingo? Det säger "The banger tastes good." Vad är "banger"?
Ja, I make up jättebigswedishwords all the time (smile). I'm in the USA. Education about world cultures—and other things—is severely lacking.
Fair enough! They're called bangers because the sound of a sausage skin splitting sounds like a bang. :)
