How does "i allmänhet" mean "generally"? Just trying to understand so I won't get them mixed up.
Well, you don't have 'in generality' in English, but you do have 'in general' which is close.
Im trying to understand the word by dividing it into smaller pieces, but where does the 'heten' come from/what does it mean?
-het is an ending Swedish can add to words in the same way English adds -ness to form a noun. The -en is the definite form of the word. Allmän means the adjective "public".
Ah, that makes sense indeed. Thank you!
If you want to translate it into the related parts in English, it would be like "all-men-hood" ... -het is roughly '-ness' but is related to '-hood' in English.
Or 'heid' in my native language. I just didn't see it because of the -en on the end. Thanks for helping all!
Or "-heit" in German
Then why is it öppet and not öppen
It has to agree with the det at the beginning.
Could that also be "open to everyone"?
No, that would be öppet för alla.
I tried "everybody" which seemed logical. Nope.
That would also be alla. allmänheten means 'the public'.
Öppet and öppnar are same?
öppnar is more of "is opening" or "opens"
