So now I know how I should say The Actor in Danish!
That song (and that band) is exactly why I'm here learning Danish (fangirl motivation lol)
simple question, how would i distinguish an actress from an actor ? if say i saw two of them drinking something but wanted to point out that it was the actress but not the actor that was drinking the tea?
You could use the "-inde" suffix to make it "skuespillerinde" but, at least in my experience, I've seen "skuespiller" used much more often
hmm ok tak :)
Xneb's explanation is correct. Skuespillerinde (actress) is very old fashioned. There is no real gender distinction anymore. Maybe award shows are the only places you can still find it.
I'm assuming skuespiller is a compound word? Of course I know what spiller means, but what about skue?
So bassicly you use the same to man and woman?
Cognate with German Schauspieler
