Why is the plural of flicka flickOr when it's pojkAr for pojke? Is there a rule to this or is it random? Because "flickar" appeals more intuitive when the singular already ends with an a.
I just noticed it's the same for kvinna. Is the plural, other than singular gender, sex specific?
Again and again, I heard "Pojke och flickor" in both normal and slow version.
In Swedish, is the "i" sound pronounced like the "i" in the English word "pig" or like an "ee" like in "spleen"?
Late answer but in case anyone still wonders: basically it's a long vowel if it's followed by a single consonant, and a short vowel if it's followed by two or more consonants. There are, of course, some exceptions :)
