Is that "Vi kramar ofta våra barn" the only correct order? I wrote "Vi ofta kramar vara barn" and it is not correct solution.
Yup, V2 rule. The verb holds your first-born child hostage until you let it come in second place in the sentence, so the ofta has to move.
"Vi kramar våra barn ofta" is perfectly fine Swedish too.
Why is "Ofta kramar vi våra barn." incorrect? Is it wrong to start with ofta?
It's not grammatically incorrect, just very unidiomatic. Without context, it sounds like a novel from the 1800s.
Thank you for the quick response! (Also for the laugh! I feel like I often say things that sound a little off.)
What about ”krama om”? I was marked wrong for ”Vi kramar ofta om våra barn”. Is this a regional thing or colloqial?
That works, too. I'll add it.
