barn = child
et barn = a child
barnet = the child
børn = children
børnene = the children
Are there other a -> ø vowel shift words other than barn => børn?
children means børn and børne too?
Nope, just "børn"
Et barn (A child), barnet (the child), flere børn (several children), alle børnene (all the children)
Thnaks for the explanation, Sean. You helped everybody here, I am sure. Thank you!
i am quite sure that another lesson here has taught me "børne".I am making notes,and it is written in that.another example:dyre and dyr means animals too,i was told.it was you,probably. :) thanks anyway,you have helped me a lot!
Børn means childern,
dyr means animals
Børnehave means kindergarten,
dyrehave means zoo
The "e" is introduced to glue the compound words together.
Just me that can only hear 'bøger' and not 'børn'?... yes, no, maybe? I don't know.
S'pose the audio's a bit mangled...
No, you are not alone. Now that I have spoken with some real people outside, the feminine voice here is terrible
Still confused: born is both child and children?
