Why is var used? I only know var as "where." Can it also be the past tense of är?
If it is to mean once the stress should be on 'en'. If it is on 'gång' it would mean a pathway or an aisle.
Actually gång har more meanings than that. Gång is translated to time, as in
Det var en gång... | Once upon a time...
Hur många gånger måste jag säga åt dig | How many times do I have to tell you
Or it can mean course/lapse
- Livet har sin gång | Life takes its course
Gång is also used for multiplication
- Tre gånger tre är nio | Three times three is nine
Ooh! I had been wondering why "gång" referred to time, but was also seen in "ingång/utgång". It all makes sense now.
