Poor turtles!

Lucky turtles actually. Here on Duo, they are regularly on the menu at mealtimes. (I understand they are actually very tasty, which is why the giant Galapagos turtles no longer exist...)

Why is it allt and not alla?

  • allt = everything
  • alla = everyone, or all

    Please explain "allting". I thought it could fit this sentence. What is the difference between "allt" and "allting"?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/devalanteriel

    allt is just a shorter and nowadays much more common version of allting.

    You can see the evolution pretty easily actually: all things = alla ting = all-ting = allting = allt.

      Tack så mycket!

      What about allting?


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/devalanteriel

      Sure, that works as well - allt is just a shorter version of allting.

      I like turtles :(


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Semeltin

      my brother says that literally every day, now I like everything except turtles .

      • utom = except
      • utan = without

      My husband begs to differ. It's the only swedish word he's actually learned (specifically the singular definite form) so we're always referencing it.

      What did the turtles do?


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SayantanCh722302

      Why its not "Jag tycker om allting utan sköldpaddor"


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/devalanteriel

      That is also accepted.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/karenestrella1

      That is what I answered, but it was not accepted.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/devalanteriel

      Oh no, I'm sorry. I misread that.

      • utan = without
      • utom = except

      Why does "Jag gillar allt utom sköldpaddor" not work?


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ALIFAJ07

      Why i am being corrected?, i am answering the same exact thing as YOUR correction


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/devalanteriel

      There's no error report from you, so unless you have a screenshot I'm afraid there's no way to tell. Could be a bug, or it could be that you just missed a typo.

      Is there a difference between "tycker om" and "gillar?"
