why do I need the definite form here? Shouldn't it be "sextio äpple"?
There is no definite, maybe you're forgetting that it's ett äpple. It goes like this:
singular: ett äpple, äpplet
plural: äpplen, äpplena
but but but, I thought the singular indefinite form of ett-words is similar to the indefinite plural form? Really confused here :/
If they end in a consonant, that is true, but if they end in a vowel, they get plural -n, so it's not all random.
I totally forgot about it. Thanks a lot :)
This refers to 60 apples so why not use the plural then äpplena?
Could "ungefär" work here?
nästan is 'almost' because it is always 'less than', but ungefär is 'around', it could be either more or less.
