In all the Swedish words for certain types of meat,how is the k pronounced?
Cool. I notice with the native speaking human voices, they say a lot of words with slight differences. How much variety is there really in Swedish pronunciation?
Normally it is acceptable to use both simple present and present progressive in these exercises. Shouldn't "The wolf eats meat" also be correct?
It's "the meat" in the definite here, so that's probably the reason. I'm assuming "The wolf eats the meat" is also accepted. :)
Would I ever say this sentence in Swedish when talking to someone? Are the rules for using definite and indefinite forms of words in Swedish the same as in English? Because sometimes I encounter examples that don't make much sense so I'm wondering... Thank you :D
The rules are roughly the same but there are some important cases where they differ. The idea of Duo is that you'll learn the language by being exposed to different examples, rather than teaching you single useful phrases.
What's the difference between "Ulv" and "Varg" in Swedish? *If there is any?
They're completely synonymous, but ulv is the older word and it's really oldfashioned today. If you exclude fantasy settings, poetry, lyrics, etc., it's all but archaic.
Thanks a lot. I got confused since I was listening to Swedish folk the other day. :)
That'd be a prime example of where it's actually used. :) Oh, you might find interesting that the male name Ulf has the same meaning. It's very common in Sweden, but you won't find that many people with that name under the age of, say, 45. :)
