You can't use "Vet du varför" to say "Why do you know?"
That would be "Varför vet du det?".
So what exactly does vet mean and what contexts are it used in? I'm a bit confused.
can someone please explain shortly how to use that new verb 'veta'? for instance, if one wants to say "I don't know" is it "Jag vet inte" ? Thanks in advance.
Yes, that's right. I wrote shortly about the use of veta and känna in another comment here.
dude, same. i am having such a hard time now... swedish is not as easy as i initially had thought.
Vet du varför? Do you know why? And what if i would ask: Why don't you know? Is ' Varför du inte vet?' correct?
No, in questions the verb needs to be first of all. The only thing you can have before it is a question word. So it would have to be Varför vet du inte?
Now, as i thought over it, it seems obvious. I guess i had a temporary eclipse of the mind:). Tack.
Isn't "Know you why?" Grammatically acceptable in English, or is that my mistake? (I know it is sort of dated but...)
