Nogle gange kan også bruges i stedet for sommetider.

This is not a question but why the verb and the pronoun swap their positions then?


Is it correct to write "sometimes" as "sommetider"? Can it be written as "somme tider"?


Why can't I use "i morgen"


i morgen in Danish means tomorrow. So, maybe that is why. But this is just my guess. You probably meant "i morgenen". I wrote the same and did not get it right either.

There seem to be a lot of rules about the usage of prepositions in Danish- for example when to use paa in stead of i or om is a little too fuzzy for a learner, IMHO.

If someone reading this post has a link to some resource that explains the usage of i, paa or om in different conditions, please reply.


Why is formiddagen not acceptable in lieu of morgenen? My understanding is that both mean morning.


Think of formiddagen as "almost noon" or "almost midday". i.e. before midday. It's that time of day that's right after morning but right before noon. Even though in the US, we just call it all "morning", in many parts of the world, forenoon (and thus, formiddag) is more of a thing


Why is this wrong: "jeg sover sommetider om morgen"?
