A good way to remeber how to say you are wearing things is to think about it as, i have ____on.

Thanks this will help I am sure.

Would that answer be accepted? Is it ok to say 'the girls have skirts on'


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mymbled

i always translate it that way and it works for me

Forget rød grød med fløde. Nederdele is the hardest to say in a sentance.

Not as hard as "tallerkenerne"

Could a literal translation of nederdele be "lower part"? (As in German "niederes Teil")?

But "niederes Teil" sounds like an offensive word.

Ah! The suggestions for har and på as wearing threw me off. A literal translation is "have on."

Does anybody have tips on how "nederdele" is pronounced? I can only find examples. What do you do with your mouth?

Why not nederdelene?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Maria576117

"Nederdelene" is "the skirts".

The first d in nederdele sounds to me like an Icelandic đ. Is there a way to know when the d should sound this way?
