"The city is in southern Sweden."

Translation:Staden ligger i södra Sverige.

February 19, 2015



So can you clarify how "södra" is used? Is it a plural adjective here? If so, why? ("Sverige" is not determinate, right?) Does it have singular forms? Or is the word used more like an adverb?


Proper nouns are commonly treated as definites.

    'I södra Sverige' means 'in southern Sweden'. How would you say 'in south of sweden'. Is it maybe 'söder i sverige'? And just additional question, what is the difference between söder and syd?


    "i Sveriges söder" or "i södra delen av landet."


    Often Sydsverige.


    Can someone explain to me what söder means? I'm always using this instead of södra. Maybe you even got a tip to remember?
