"When does the meeting end?"
Translation:När slutar sammanträdet?
How would you describe the difference between a sammanträde and a möte? Is sammanträde more formal?
I think a sammanträde can be more formal than a möte. A sammanträde is also always organised and has fixed routines. A möte can also be that, but it can also be more spontaneous.
Does "sammanträdet" have anything to do with "trädet"? Is it literally the together-tree?
I think avsluta is more like "finish" but I don't think there's a major difference between the two.
That's true. avsluta in principle requires an object, unless it's passive I guess.
Vi avslutar mötet klockan 18 'We finish the meeting at 6am'.
Only sluta can mean 'quit', like in sluta röka 'quit smoking'
If you slutar med det du gör you stop doing it, but if you avslutar det du gör, you'll finish it as in 'it will be finished, ready'.
Aha, so am I right to understand that tar slut should be split here? När tar mötet slut?
