  5. "Hon älskar henne."

"Hon älskar henne."

Translation:She loves her.

February 14, 2015



I definitely love the sentence.

August 2, 2018


means she loves herself? or A loves B?

February 14, 2015


It means A loves B. Otherwise it would have been ”Hon älskar sig själv”.

tack! själv seems to equal 'self' in english

It means a girl loves another girl.. or person with same gender. This case is also for he likes him. Got it?

How do I differentiate between hon and han? How do they sound different?

February 8, 2017


You can try to remember "hon" and "han" like:

hOn - wOman hAn - mAn

And as for how they sound different, try using the example for differentiating them when using a sentence.

In other words, when talking, try to pronounce the "o" in "hon" like the "o" in "woman", and the "a" in "han" like the "a" in "man".

((Hope this could help! ^o^))

Purely a vowel difference. Kind of like the enunciation of awe-n and on.

I did it that way - Han Solo is a man. So han means he.

What is the difference between henne and hennes?

... and Lesbihonest, that's really cool

This applies to all kinds of relationships; romantic, family, friends, pets. This also applies to non humans: For example "Hon" could be a female dog who loves its female owner "henne", or the other way around. Or a female animal loving another female animal

Is this common in swedish? In english it would usually be changed to "(name) loves him/her" to avoid any possible confusion.

Well, saying something like "she loves her" makes sense if, say, the previous sentence said something about the two. Like "Alice wants to marry Katy. She loves her"
