I can imagine Elvis Presley's velvet voice here: " Är du lonesoooome, i kväll?"
It doesn't have to be, but yeah, you don't have to use too much fantasy to arrive at that... :)
it is somewhat confusing to me when kväll mean evening, and when it means evening. Is there a place to find the definition or explanation? I was thinking there was a lesson about a time when it changes from afternoon and evening, or maybe evening from night. But I am very unsure or confused. I tried the internet, which sometimes I can get an explanation, but none for this. thanks.
It was back in the section on Time. I believe Time 1? There was a discussion there that kväll was approximately 6 pm to midnight.
Yes, it's English that is messy. kväll always means 'evening' and natt always means 'night', but in English night overlaps with evening so that for instance 20.00 could be either in "this evening" or "tonight". Of course it still varies individually depending on when people go to bed in Swedish too, but calling 20.00 inatt here would be really extreme.
Not really, Richard. We stopped going to bed by sunset when we got electricity. :D
does it change with the seasons? for instance in winter would it be more acceptable to say inatt for 8pm?
The pronuciation of 'kvväll' in the sentence seemed a little bit strange to me. I thought the last ll was /ri/. Does TTS seem perfect to you guys?
Is "ikväll" also correct, or is it always "i kväll?"
