Why wasn't "Are the potatoes beautiful" accepted? Don't you think potatoes can be beautiful? :'(

no they are not they are just potatoes, wtf

Ha ha, old Swedes are normally obsessed with potatoes and eat them at least once a day.

January 15, 2015


I thought it was an Irish thing mostly.

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.

nice is interchangable with good?

January 29, 2015


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?

December 11, 2015


Could be either or both, but probably physical appearance.

so this doesn't refer to the taste at all?

These must have been the most polite potatoes I have ever heard of!

The local potatoes are jerks

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.

Nice is a more common way than good to describe food in the UK.

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?

October 25, 2016


Man, the tts really lead me astray here. I was so confused since it made no sense.

August 28, 2016


Same, I heard this one as "är potatis samma fina"

August 29, 2016


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.

My answer: Are the potatoes fine? Now we're getting down to the most important questions.
