It's because it is an ett-word:
ett djur - flera djur
but for example:
en bur - flera burar (cage)
en skulptur - flera skulpturer (sculpture)
I have read somewhere that ett-words that end on consonants (e.g. djur, barn, brev) do not change between singular and plural.
So, this sentence literally mean "birds are animal"? As far as I know "djur" is singular
It's ett djur, so it goes like this: ett djur, djuret and plural djur, djuren.
So djur is plural here.
this is just a general question: do all the people doing the same course get the same question(s) in the same order?
This is irregular from what we have been shown to this point! We started many lessons ago with 'en fågel' and 'fågeln'. The plural keeps 'flåg-' but drops the 'el' and then adds 'ar'. I wonder how often we will see this.
It was about 30 minutes later when I discovered that. :facepalm:
A problem for me is that the intro sections, which really are very valuable, are positioned far enough below the main icons of a section's home page that they fall out of sight. On my display (a Windows7 notebook), I have to remember to go look for them. Unless I go to the section home page and scroll down, I miss them. This is my mistake, of course, especially considering that the content usually holds such valuable material.
I've done the very same mistakes when studying Dutch, missing out on valuable help. :/
