You see, it goes ett, två, tre, fyra, fem, sex, sju, åtta, nio, tio, elva, tolv, tretton, fjorton, femton, sexton, sjutton, arton, nitton, tjugo, tjugoett, tjugotvå, tjugotre...
Trivia addition to Zmrzlina's comment:
Swedish uses a thin space delimiter for separating thousands, whereas some European countries use a point. So we write 1 000 000, others write 1.000.000, and the US write 1,000,000. Mildly confusing.
And it gets worse: Sweden used to separate with dots previously, but the recommendation was changed a few decades ago. Other countries (e.g. Germany) are undergoing the same process.
Finally, it's not actually a regular space, it's the typographical thin space that's used... :)
Can anyone explain the word universum? Does it mean both universe and the universe?
A hypothetical definite form would be universumet, but we always talk about it in the indefinite as if it were a name almost.
Would that definite form be used when speaking of something like the Marvel universe? Perhaps "Det Marvel universumet"?
Copy-pasting myself from here: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/5769082/Hon-har-en-miljon-v%C3%A4nner
We use the long scale. I'll use numbers to ensure I don't screw up. :)
- en miljon = 1 000 000 = an English million
- en miljard = 1 000 000 000 = a modern English billion
- en biljon = 1 000 000 000 000 = a modern English trillion
