Why does this sentence start with "Det" and not with "Den"? if we are talking about a book ( en bog) shouldn't we use "Den" in the beginning of the sentence?
Thanks in advance :)
That is a very frequently asked question :)
Until the gender of the noun is revealed, you use 'det'. For example:
A: Det er en bog
B: Den er god
B uses 'den' because A established the gender of the noun and can therefore use the article 'den' to refer to 'bogen'
Thanks RidderJakob :D
No problem! I'm glad I can help :)
Thank you for the explanation Ridder.
Does B have a typo? I'm thinking 'God' is misspelled as 'godt' which means 'good' if I'm correct.
If im wrong and 'god' is different word from 'godt' then what is 'god'
"God" is not misspelled. It is the baseform of the adjective. "godt" is the t-form and "gode" is the e-form.
