Why is it "det" here instead of "den" if "region" is an -en noun? Is the generic "it" always "det" no matter what "it" turns out to be? Tack.
Yep, that's correct. Swedish defaults to the neutral det in these constructions even when using den would otherwise be perfectly sensible.
Why is 'region' not pronounced with ɧ?
It is a rather recent loan word. And it is awkward to say “rejijon”
Skåne, Lapland, och Gotland :)
English is not my mother language, but why "This is an interesting region." is not correct. Its have to be "It is"? Whats a different? Shouldn't both be correct?
det is always "it" or "that", but never "this".
