"He is a man."
Translation:Han er en mand.
I tried "Han er et mand." How do I know when to use "en" (which is apparently correct here) instead of "et"?
It's just a different gender. And you can't guess, you just need to know, as always when a language has genders.
and what on earth is the actual cussing in my previous comment?
So you say "et bord" (the word for 'table' is neuter) and "en kvinde" (the word for 'woman' is of the common gender)
the hell. i wrote 'han er en mand' first time, didnt work. 2nd time changed to man* , now my first answer showed up as the right answer....
mand = man
manden = the man
same with the neuter gender:
æble = apple
æblet = the apple
