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".
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!
