When should i use 'en' vs 'ett'? Does it have to do with the first sound of the next word like the difference between 'a' and 'an'?
Swedish nouns have genders, by that I mean, articles and adjectives will slightly change depending on what gender the word is.
There are only two genders, "Ett" nouns (Neuter), and "En" nouns (Common).
So "Ett grönt äpple" -> "A green apple", but "En grön man" -> "A green man".
As for how do you know when a word is an "En" noun rather than an "Ett" noun?
There aren't really any concrete rules. It's mostly just memorization.
Is "ett" equivalent to "an," or is that how it is just conveniently used in this sentence?
