What is the difference between ensam and enslig?
ensam = a person being alone, or feeling alone.
enslig = a house built far away from other houses, maybe in a wood, in a solitary environment
Tack så mycket! =D
'Ensam' is pronounce incorrectly, actually the voice sounds like "än sen" (so what), which does not work here.
The new TTS is good though (Feb 19, 2015).
When will we all hear the new, good one ..??
I don't know. But you can go to this site, choose Swedish, Astrid and type something to test. I also have the old one and I sometimes use Ivona to compare the TTS:s.
Hmm, for some strange reason she won't talk to me ...
If one was intending to use the English phrase "I had known loneliness" how would the Swedish sentence differ? Or would it?
I'd actually translate that as Jag hade upplevt ensamhet, though maybe there's an even better way of saying it.
I had felt alone should also be possible? Or does the reflexive mig make lonely necessary?
Even i used a reflexive sentence,,,Ihad felt myselfe alone ,,,it was wrong
"I had felt alone." is accepted.
could I also say "Jag hade mårt ensam"?
I think you mean "mått", but that is used only with bra/good, dåligt/bad and similar, describing ones wellbeeing, not for feelings like lonely or happy etc
I know that this sentence also can mean "I would have felt lonely" (and it was the first meaning that came to mind until I remembered which section I was in). But I don't really know the grammatical reason why. Can anyone help?
