Why wasn't "Are the potatoes beautiful" accepted? Don't you think potatoes can be beautiful? :'(
Ha ha, old Swedes are normally obsessed with potatoes and eat them at least once a day.
Definitely not! The cultural importance of potatoes in Sweden cannot be overestimated. Potatoes made it possible for the population to grow in the 19th century in a way that drastically changed the course of history.
The use of potatoes for making vodka has also had a huge impact.
I'm not sure what nice means in this sentence. Does it mean "physically appealing/attractive" or does it mean "good quality" or something else?
I think you guys should change the principal translation to "good" which is a more common adjective for describing food. Nice is usually used to describe character. :) Though maybe you should leave it how it is, it's fun this way.
It can also be a question from the cook to ask if they suit the eater. Or it can also be a question of someone who wants to know if they are tasty and worth taking. My father came from Swede as a teenager, and he would eat potatoes at every meal if they were on the table.
Does Swedish usually use potatoes in plural form or as a colective noun in singular?
Man, the tts really lead me astray here. I was so confused since it made no sense.
It reminds me of skam "Your body needs potatoes". Unfortunately, I forgot the Norwegian sentence :(
'Nice' is often marked wrong when used with food words. Why is it the preferred option here? I personally would use nice 100 times more often than tasty when extolling the virtues of a nice portion of champit tatties.
