"Years and months"
Translation:År och månader
I tried mobile version a few days ago, and it has no comments, so I comment now here, when I get the same sentence on PC. I had Swedish+English translation there, and I wrote 'Year and months' and it was marked as wrong. Why is år is both 'year' and 'years'. How am I supposed to guess is it plural or singular here?
Doesn't "year and months" sound strange without an article? If it's one year only, it makes sense to state that.
It does, but on the other hand, Duolingo often shows phrases and half-sentences that no-one would say in real life. How are you supposed to know when to use your logic and when not?
Because "åren" means the years.
ett år -året (a year - the year)
flera år -åren (several years - the years)
